City center/Norrmalm: District guide

The City Center is the place for affordable shopping, especially for the young and trendy. Drottninggatan and the area between Sergels Torg and Kungsträdgården offer a mix of clothing chains and large-scale classic Stockholm department stores. Åhléns City, where Drottninggatan ends at Sergels Torg, is a popular department store with most of the best Swedish brands.

There are several large chain stores in the nearby area and at Gallerian on Hamngatan, shopaholics can get their fill of various clothing chains and then stop for a bite at one of the many restaurants and cafés. NK (Nordiska kompaniet), on Hamngatan, is a national institution when it comes to fashion and design, and the nearby MOOD Stockholm is a new mall with shopping, food and service. 

For a break from the hustle and bustle of the city center you´ll find that Kungsträdgården is perfect for an ice cream and people-watching; during spring thousands of pink cherry blossoms light up the park and when winter comes, the ice-skating rink is a very popular spot for both visitors and locals alike. Don’t miss the newly refurbished Hötorgshallen food hall and the colorful market on the adjacent square.
