NORRMALM
null

The southern part of the district, Lower Norrmalm (Nedre Norrmalm), also known as City, constitutes the most central part of Stockholm, while Upper Norrmalm (Övre Norrmalm) is more residential.

The name Norrmalm is first mentioned in 1288. In 1602 Norrmalm became an independent city with its own mayor and administration called the Northern Suburb (Norra Förstaden). The town was short-lived and in 1635 it was incorporated with Stockholm again. Norrmalm is today considered to be the central part of Stockholm.

GAMLA STAN

Gamla Stan, the Old Town, is one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. This is where Stockholm was founded in 1252.

All of Gamla Stan and the adjacent island of Riddarholmen are like a living pedestrian-friendly museum full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop. Gamla Stan is also popular with aficionados of handicrafts, curious, and souvenirs. The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades, and on snowy winter days, the district feels like something from a storybook.

DJURGÅRDEN

No matter the season, a walk along Djurgården is beautiful. In some areas, you will have difficulty imagining you’re in the middle of a big city.

Many of the most popular museums and attractions in Stockholm can be found at Djurgården. But the island is also the greenest of them all, part of the National City Park, with vast areas of forest and open spaces.

There are some cafes and restaurants for pit stops along the way. A visitor’s center is located just past the bridge, providing tourist information and canoe and bike rental. You can also visit royaldjurgarden.se for more info on interesting things to do on the island.

Seeing as Djurgården is a hub of beloved attractions and museums, also makes it one of the most visited areas in Stockholm. Djurgården’s attractions have for several years worked together to make sure that any development of the island is made with long-term sustainability in mind. You can read more about their work and goals here. (Text: Visitstockholm.com)

ÖSTERMALM

Östermalm makes for an interesting contradiction. It’s a posh residential neighborhood. But it also has the highest concentration of nightclubs in the city, found around Stureplan.

Bibliotekstan is the city’s most affluent shopping district, with exclusive Scandinavian and international brands. A slow saunter between the food stalls in the Östermalmshallen market hall is also mandatory.

KUNGSHOLMEN

Kungsholmen is primarily a residential island, where you’ll have a great opportunity to mix with the locals.

Lots of lively restaurants, bars, and cafés are found here, especially along Hantverkargatan and Fleminggatan. Kungsholmen is home to the most prominent building of the Stockholm skyline, the City Hall. If you get the chance, don’t miss climbing the tower to be amazed by the incredible view.

VASASTADEN
null

Vasastan lies at the northern edge of innercity Stockholm, with Kungsholmen to the west, Östermalm to the east, and the city center to the South.

Up until the 1880s, it consisted primarily of several large estates, when the city council decided it would become a residential area. The main bulk of the buildings are from the early 20th century which makes Vasastan a must-see for architecture buffs wanting to see examples of Nordic Classicism; the Stockholm Public Library (designed by Gunnar Asplund) and the buildings in Atlasområdet to name a few.
