“Functionalist architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

The buildings round Tessinparken north of Karlaplan (T - metro) on the other side of Valhallavägen are the most beautiful examples of a vital livingarea of functionalist architecture built 1932-1940.

“A relaxing peace of town with some classy shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

I love the beautiful arcitecture of this part of town. Here it is less shops and people but the choice of cafes and shops are more "upperclass". It is really a nice walk, walking t.ex. from Humlegårdsparken, along Karlavägen to Karlaplan, either when it his white and snowy in winter or under the green trees in summer. There are som really good places for a cup of coffee or a nice lunch or dinner.

Boring and overrated, many more interesting places in the neighbouring parts of the city.

“Nice place for shopping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Good place if you like high-end shopping but not so good if you are looking for a parking space. Really hard to find because there is always road construction work or some construction on buildings. Ostermalms saluhall, Artinian Jewelry, StureOptikern, Louis Vuitton and a bunch of other great stores to visit but please make sure to use the subway.
