At 21 storeys high, Nyponet – the original “student skyscraper” – is one of Stockholm’s best-known landmarks. Thanks to its elevated position, you don’t need to go many floors up to get a view out over the rooftops on the other side of Valhallavägen. The roof terrace at the top of the building offers spectacular views of the whole city, and northwards over Brunnsviken and Haga Park. This is a perfect spot to sit and have a barbecue in the summer while you enjoy the sunset.
Nyponet consists almost exclusively of two and three room apartments, making it a popular choice for families with children. The building is ideally located for those studying at KTH (which is just a couple of minutes’ walk away) and is also close to Stockholm University.
If you’re moving to Nyponet, you should be aware that Valhallavägen, which is a busy road, runs just down from the building. However, on the plus side you are close to green spaces. You can jog or walk either in Lilljans Forest or even closer in Haga Park, which benefits from a beautiful location at Brunnsviken. Haga Park is the favourite park of many Stockholmers, but has plenty of space for large numbers of visitors. Here you will find both woods and grassy areas – ideal for picnicking and ball games – and of course the famous Koppartälten Pavilion and the Butterfly House.
