The Katarina Elevator or Katarina Lift (Swedish: Katarinahissen) is a passenger elevator in Stockholm that connects Slussen (the sluice/lock area) to the heights of Södermalm. The lift was a shortcut between Katarinavägen, Slussen and Mosebacke torg. The original lift was constructed in 1881, but the current structure dates from the rebuilding of the Slussen transport interchange in 1936. The lift has been closed since 2010 due to lack of security in the construction. The lift will remain closed at least until Projekt Slussen is completed in 2025.

We went to this place, the entrance was quite hard to find, but after arriving the far end it was worth to climb up the stairs! Stunning view with very nice weather. This is the best place to see the sunset as well!
Beautiful view over the city in particular of the old town (gamma stan) and slussen!
Free viewing platform, good for a quick stop off
Pretty cool place for sightseeing above Stockholm. Although the place underneath it and around it is currently a huge gaping crater it is still fairly cool.
The whole square underneath is a big construction site so the views were rather dissapointing. I could see only a bit of Gamla Stan.
Lovely view at night.
