Södermalm is a city district area (Swedish: stadsdelsområde, often referred to as a borough) in central Stockholm, created 1 January 2007, through the merging of the boroughs of Maria-Gamla Stan and Katarina-Sofia. It covers the island of Södermalm and some neighboring districts. Södermalm is often shortened "Söder".
The two former boroughs made up the eastern and western half of the island of Södermalm. The Maria-Gamla Stan also included the island districts of Gamla Stan, Långholmen, Reimersholme, Riddarholmen and Årsta holmar; Katarina-Sofia included the district Södra Hammarbyhamnen south of Södermalm. All these districts are now parts of the new Södermalm borough.
Maria-Gamla Stan was the result of a previous merging between the original borough with the same name, and the former borough of Hornstull, in 1999.
Södermalm borough has a population of around 110,000, making it the most populated borough of Stockholm. The area Hammarby Sjöstad is located in the Södermalm borough.
