The area
Neighborhood: Norrmalm
Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street, Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and Åhléns City juxtaposed with Stockholm’s most modern shopping mall, Mood Stockholm. Visitors to this area get to experience the unique Swedish philosophy of protecting cultural heritage while also staying on top of fashion innovation and modern architecture.

Some quality shops along a central pedestrian street catering to locals and tourists. Probably one of the better places to shop in Stockholm for the average tourist.
Plenty of restaurants if you have the need...

It's a pedestrian shopping street , from the old town Västerlånggatan street head north and cross over a bridge , and here you are . It's full of shoppers from all around the world . Either you love it or hate it here ! Depends on your interest ! Again I bought some souvenirs , some clothes from this street as I have limited time because I'm on a cruise . It saves my time to shop here all in one street . But I got to pay 10 kr just to use the toilet at Ahlens department store ! That's the most expensive toilet I got to pay to use so far !

This is a very nice shopping street in the middle of the town, with the Southern end leading to Gamla Stan (old town). The street is lined with shops and restos, along with malls such as Ahlens and NK. You can spend several hours browsing through the stores and trying out the different restaurants or cafes. Prices are relatively cheap in Stockholm compared to other Scandinavian cities, so it is a good place to shop. There are also several interesting and beautiful buildings along the way which are a real treat for the senses.

Avoid this candy store, their weight is definitely showing too much (tiny candy bag was almost 600 grams...) and many chocolates and bottled waters are years too old. My sparkling water had expired in 2008 and tasted so weird I threw it away.

Those bad foreign people (from Syria) steal your money in GOTTCENTER, in Drottninggatan 27!!!! For shopping of 10 euros value they take 40 euros!!!! Don´t ever go that shop and tell all people to avoid it! I already contacted Stockholm police and told them about the case!

Stay away from this shop!! There are no price tags and the stuff is way too expensive!! We payed 234 SKR for 6 postcards an stamps, which is more than double than in other shops. When we complained, the shop assistant refused to take the cards back, got very rude and insulted us.
Also the shop is very dirty and the candies don't look very appetizingly.

So, stay away from this shop!

The lower part of Drottninggatan don't offer anything but chain stores, crowds of tourists and all types(!) of trash.

Avoid the candy store Gottcenter, at Drottningsgatan 27 (on the west side of the street). Some items lacks pricing, and for an ice cream I was charged 30% more than everywhere else, including across the street. And their scale for weighing the candy is hardly correct (and I'm quite good at judging weight). I paid 84 SEK for an ice cream and a tiny bag of chocolate! -much more than any other candy shop.

This is not the Sweden I once knew! Today was my last day in Stockholm and I bought gums in this store. I wanted a kg to surprise my daughters, who love the Swedish gums, the "Stora Raton" and pacifiers. When the seller weighed, instead of an approximate a kg, the scale indicated 1,5kg. I thought it would not be correct, but did not believe I was being cheated in Sweden! We pay 1,5kg. When I arrived home, in Portugal, today, I weighed gums. Instead of 1.5 kg there were 929gr.He, was robbed at about 600gr! This has to be reported to the police in Stockholm!

Items without a price, are 10 times more expensive than the seller says. And after paying by credit card the seller refuses to return the money until you call up the police.

Yes, indeed it is a very, very long pedestrian street with a lot of shops, but it has no "soul". A lot of the usual chain-shops you find in every shopping centre in Sweden and a lot of tourist. Stockholm has so much other more beautiful places to experience just minutes away.
