This tunnel is a spot that you won’t find in any city guides or travel books, it is a hidden gem located right in the heart of Stockholm. The tunnel is 231 meters long and15 metres below ground. Commuters and other members of the public use it on a daily basis travelling from the city to Östermalm and vice versa.
As you enter the tunnel you might hear music from buskers that frequent the tunnel. Using the shape and length of the path and wall, the sound of their music carries from one end to the other.
This tunnel is popular for budding photographers and Instagrammers who know this location when they visit the city. The bright yellow walls are a great contrast to the corrugated aluminum ceiling. If you shoot straight down the tunnel on a quiet day it is simple to create a vanishing point effect in your photos.
The walk from one end of the tunnel to another is very short but there are many different ways that you can shoot photos along the way. The tunnel is both a footpath and a cycling path so I would advise being cautious when standing in the centre of the tunnel incase a cyclist is trying to get past.
Brunkeberg Tunnel is definitely an interesting and unusual spot to check out if you have some spare time in Stockholm so I recommend that you add it to your list of things to do while in the city.
