Danderyd is a small, leafy suburb, just north of Stockholm. Around 32,000 people live here. It is around 28 square kilometers that is bordered by Edsviken lake on the west that runs around the south end into the sea on the east side. There are flats here, with more being built as soon as possible to meet housing needs but most people live in houses. Many people commute into Stockholm to work - it takes just 10 minutes by tube or train. Most services exist here, such as plenty of schools and healthcare options but other services are shared with neighbouring Täby.
