One thing you may notice when you visit Stockholm for the first time is that many people are very fashionable, and that many apartments and shops have very distinctive and exceptionally beautiful interior designs. Stockholmers love nice things and many of them are quite serious about what and where they buy their various items. Despite its rather small size, the city is a great destination for shopping and this guide will lead you to the places that should be at the top of your list.

    The Hay Market in Stockholm is a market place in the city center where you can buy fresh food, flowers, antiques (sometimes), and much more. In addition to the market square itself, there is a cinema, a concert hall and a very cool department store. Start your shopping tour here to get some initial inspiration.

    Drottninggatan (Queen Street) is Stockholm's main shopping street. The street stretches from the Royal Palace on Gamla Stan to Observatorielunden; a small hill from where you get a great view over the city. The street itself attracts many locals and visitors with a great variety of shops and restaurants.

    • Come here after visiting the Hay Market. Drottninggatan is right next to it!
    • One of the main shopping attractions on Drottninggatan is Åhléns City, the biggest branch of the Swedish department store chain Åhléns.
    • This street is better for shopping than for eating. If you are hungry, instead of going to a restaurant on Drottninggatan, visit one down one of the side streets.

    Kulturhuset (the Culture House) is a theater/café/performance center in the city center of Stockholm. It is located right across from Åhléns City and is the perfect place to continue your shopping tour. The square in front of Kulturhuset leads you to Sergelgången, an underground shopping street that connects Åhléns with Nordiska Kompaniet.

    Johannes F Says:

    Stockholm can be pretty cold, not only during winter, but also in spring and autumn. Because of this, the city offers many indoor shopping opportunities, such as Gallerian, a shopping mall in the city center. Gallerian is located right next to Kulturhuset and is a great place for shopping on a rainy or snowy day. In this mall you will find the most famous Swedish clothing store chains, such as Topshop/Topman, Hollister, as well as a bunch of restaurants and coffee shops.

    Emmaus Vintage Shop is a great place for all bargain hunters. There are several vintage stores in Stockholm, but none of them are quite as cool as Emmaus. The store is located close to Götgatan, the hipster shopping street of Södermalm. The fashion here is very representative of the alternative/hipster style of Södermalm and a great place to get a typical Stockholm outfit.
