Best Shopping in Stockholm

By Verdict Staff

Shopping in stockholm

Swedes are renowned for their style, which is often classy, simple and modern.

It’s not surprising then, that their capital is full of boutiques offering visitors and natives alike the opportunity to stock(holm) up on topquality contemporary and classic labels.

BEST SHOPPING AREAS / DISTRICTS

Stockholm is a city of many diverse areas, each with a vibrant shopping scene.

The city’s historical old town Gamla Stan is perfect for boutiques selling handcrafted traditional Swedish items as well as interior decorations and artworks. Östermalm, to the east of Gamla Stan, is the most exclusive district in the city; here you will find international labels and highclass Scandinavian brands. Södermalm, by contrast, is great for a more unusual variety of shops. It is home to a multitude of independent boutiques selling trendy fashion labels, vintage clothing, modern design work and kooky curios.

NK NORDISKA KOMPANIET

Founded in 1902, NK has been catering to Stockholmers’ shopping needs for over a century.

Six levels house over 100 departments, stocking international brands such as Hermès and Mulberry as well as well-known Swedish brands such as J Lindeberg, Filippa K, Acne, and Anna Holtblad. Here, too, the legendary crystal manufacturers Orrefors and Kosta Boda display their complete collections. In the food market, visitors can sample the best that Sweden has to offer in the way of culinary delights. The store’s bars, cafés and restaurants make it easy to take a break from shopping.
