Norrmalm is for many travelers, the first part of Stockholm that they discover. It is the area around the central train station. Norrmalm is not limited to Stockholm City but encompasses a whole section to the north (the densely populated Vasastan and Vasastaden was even an independent city between 1602 and 1635, but since has been part of Stockholm) and extends to the island Skeppsholmen in the south.
Shopping is one of the main activities in Norrmalm. In the area around Sergels Torg and Drottninggatan you find a lot of (Swedish) chains. Around Stureplan you’ll find more exclusive boutiques.
Kunstträdgården is an nice place to escape the shopping crowds. In spring you can enjoy the colours of the cherry blossoms. In winter there is an ice rink set up.
