# 9 Djurgården/Östermalm/Gärdet Part 3
If you walk on the north part of Djurgården and pass the Djurgårdsbrunns-canal (dig the “svenglish” here?)
you will end up on a big field called gärdet (or actually it’s called ladugårdsgärdet. The area nearby where people actually live is called Gärdet.)
Gärdet is wellknown for a lot of reasons. You can do hanggliding here. Sometimes circuses puts up their tents here. The kaknäs-tower is situated here (more svenglish) http://www.kaknastornet.se/ which at 155 meter offers a great view of Stockholm. It’s actually a TV-tower but apparently you can eat and party there too. I’ve never tried. The swedish Bruce Dylan, Ulf Lundell sings about the tower in this song;
He also sings about tearing apart the clouds!
In the early 70′s swedish hippies had big Woodstock-like festival-parties here with bands playing and recently they’ve started having them again but in a smaller size. Retro!!
I love gärdet ’cause you can let you dog run free without anyone getting annoyed. I shot this video there with my dog, my wife and another dog;
On the right side of gärdet you can find the headquarters of swedish media; the Tv & Radio-building.
On the left corner you can find the headquarters of the swedish film-industry and the filminstitute; Filmhuset: http://www.sfi.se/filmhuset. If you wanna see swedish actors and directors this is a good place to go. I saw Ingmar Bergman here once for example. I used to spend a lot of time here when I studied film at Stockholms University. They have most of their lectures here. Their library is really good for film-books obviously. And the best thing is that the swedish Cinematheque has it’s main theathre here and it’s such a great screening room! One of the absolute best in Stockholm for sure. So you can see all the classics properly. Thank you Henri Langlois! (If you don’t know who he is, google him!)
If you walk from Filmhuset and are heading for the nearest subway you will eventually end up at Valhallavägen. Lee Hazelwood once recorded a great song in it’s honour;
couldn’t find the video unfortunately.
Tomorrow we’ll deal with more tips from the Östermalm-area!
