Norrmalm in Stockholm is also known as the "city" (or to some people it means new town) contrasting from the Gamla Stan (the old town), which is being divided by a walkway and bridge over a promenade.
The former comprise of many shopping malls and stores, tall,big, modern and new commercial buildings, beside those boutique and independent stores around the area, including an open air fresh flowers and fruits market. And the latter would present a more historical and cultural aspects of Stockholm with centuries year old shophouse buildings, museums and churches. Both areas also have lots of restaurants, cafes, convenience and souvenir shops, makeshift stalls etc.
It's a breeze walking around here and all the lanes and roads are somehow interlinked and people here are generally friendly and helpful. When we were there after our city hall tour, it was closed to lunch time and the place (especially the F&B outlets) were packed with people. So you may have to wait for a seat but if you are short of time, having some finger food while doing your window shopping is recommended.
There were also street performers here and you could enjoy some really live singing while you roam or shop around!
We had about a good 3-hr break here and bought quite a number of souvenir items here before leaving Stockholm in the afternoon heading to Karlstad!
Recommended for a visit, especially the shopaholics!
