This rather large area is the main shopping area in Stockholm with all the larger shops and some department stores. Its also the part of town that was mostly rebuilt in the 50s and 60s so there are fewer old buildings here. Lately the buildings from 60s have become a little run down but rebuilding occurs here and there. Its also an area frequented by pick pockets since it may get crowded with people shopping so beware, specially in the summer. Lately there is also a very large influx of people begging and this gets very annoying after a while. This occurs mostly on Drottninggatan, Sveavägen and Sergels Torg. Its also an area I prefer to avoid at night as a citizen here due to higher crime rate and occurence of drug dealing. Its not unusual that you will see the homeless sleep on the pavements or close to underground stations all year round. The blocks northernmost in Norrmalm are quieter greener and also more genuine than the southern part of the area.

Nice area to look at the high-end shops and see some lovely architecture. Lots of places to eat and drink, as well.

This is the stone heart of the city. The district of buildings, streets, history, small parks. Decide what you want to see and walk from point to point. You will learn a lot and get the feel of Stockholm. Don't miss Tegnérlunden and Strindberg. Drottninggatan from Kungsgatan and west is nice. Ever crossed an esker? Take the unique stairs at Kungsgatan 32 to Malmskillnadsgatan an explore whats left of the esker. You will have a good time.

When going to Norrmalm, Vasastan etc. you will end up where the locals go and you will find smaller shops and great restaurants and small places to have a coffee.
So please leave the most central spots where mostly tourists and farmers roam. Experience the real Stockholm and walk around in the other areas :-)

Great neighbourhood of Stockholm right besides the old town. Very nice and secluded parks, some museum and many shopping stores./
