Nice bars and second hand shops. Nice to walk around. Go taste the vegetarian buffet at Hermans Trädgärdscafé at Fjällgatan, magnificent view over Sthlm.

“Hidden Treasures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Walk along Hornsgatan near the Gotgatan Street end and moving in the direction away from Gamla Stan for wonderful small one-of-a-kind shops with gorgeous textiles, paper, glass, ceramics etc. Very local. Lunch around Mariaforget park. Enjoy. Then, wonder up busy Gorgatan Street.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Was billed as being great to wander around, but we didn't find anything particularly interesting. Our visit was limited though, so whether there are parts we missed, only a second visit would reveal.
