Östermalm is one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Stockholm, with beautiful buildings, parks, and museums. This is somewhat ironic since the area was first used to keep cattle. But as Stockholm has grown into a modern city, Östermalm has become one of its most upscale neighbourhoods with some of the highest real estate prices in Sweden. This is a neighbourhood that invites you to just sit in a cafe and watch the world go by. It is also great for shopping. In fact, the upscale boutiques of Sturegallerian are the most popular shops in Stockholm.
- Shop and eat at the ÖstermalmSaluhall, a collection of markets and restaurants that both sells and serves food and is irresistible to all true foodies in Stockholm.
- Shop at SvensktTenn and you will find stylish furniture that really shows why Sweden and Stockholm are associated with quality fine furniture.
- Visit charming Karlaplan in the centre of Östermalm’s grid-like setup, a lush park with a lake and fountain streaming from the middle.
Visitors to Stockholm may arrive at Stockholm-Arlanda Airport. This modern international airport has car hires, taxis, and shuttles to transport passengers into the city. Stockholm has a great metro system and Östermalm has three metro stations: Karlaplan, Stadion, and Östermalmstorg. All of them are served by metros 13 and 14. There are also buses and you can buy a travel card that gains you access to all of them. Driving yourself is possible but the public transportation system of Stockholm is so extensive, you probably won't want to spend the extra money on a rental, and the travel between Stockholm’s islands might be difficult for a novice tourist to the area.
