Well-to-do area with smart shops

Nice area to look at the high-end shops and see some lovely architecture. Lots of places to eat and drink, as well.

Our lovely comfortable apartment was just off Valhallavägen. We enjoyed our many walks to the centre, along Nybrogatan and parallel streets. Our first afternoon we passed the unique Ostermalms Saluhall and visited Hallwyl Museum, a grand introduction to the city. Karlavagen and Valhallavägen are wonderful boulevards with a fine central linear park. The former passes through Karlaplan with its great... More

Norrmalm is mainly a commercial area Stockholm. Here you can find lots of hotels, restaurants, bars and great shopping. Do not miss the vegetable/fruit & flower market at Hötorget (open all days except Sunday's). You also have Drottninggatan, a pedestrian street with a lot of shops.

This rather large area is the main shopping area in Stockholm with all the larger shops and some department stores. Its also the part of town that was mostly rebuilt in the 50s and 60s so there are fewer old buildings here. Lately the buildings from 60s have become a little run down but rebuilding occurs here and there. Its... More

This is the stone heart of the city. The district of buildings, streets, history, small parks. Decide what you want to see and walk from point to point. You will learn a lot and get the feel of Stockholm. Don't miss Tegnérlunden and Strindberg. Drottninggatan from Kungsgatan and west is nice. Ever crossed an esker? Take the unique stairs at... More

When going to Norrmalm, Vasastan etc. you will end up where the locals go and you will find smaller shops and great restaurants and small places to have a coffee. So please leave the most central spots where mostly tourists and farmers roam. Experience the real Stockholm and walk around in the other areas :-)

Norrmalm is a great district to use as a base for your visit to Stockholm, not necessarily because of what it has to offer itself, but because it is so centrally located. Think of it as your centre point as you see it on a map – a short walk right and you are in Ostermalm, a short walk left... More

Norrmalm is my favorit district in Stockholm. They have old buildings and houses here too and there's not only in the old town. You can find many things here since it's the center of Stockholm.
