DROTTNINGGATAN

Business Traveler (USA) - - LIFESTYLES -

Just op­po­site Nordiska Museet there is a stop for the num­ber 7 tram that takes you to Drottninggatan (Queen Street) where you can in­dulge in some re­tail ther­apy. Af­ter a five-minute ride you get off at Sergels Torg, the pub­lic square, near the street named in honor of Queen Christina who ruled Swe­den from 1633 to 1654. Drottninggatan is the main pedes­tri­an­ized shop­ping thor­ough­fare in Stock­holm – it can also be reached by T-Cen­tralen metro sta­tion. At one end of the street, where the Ah­léns City depart­ment store is lo­cated, you can find shops for trendy fash­ion, in­clud­ing peren­nial fa­vorite H&M. To­wards the other end of the street are the PUB depart­ment store and high-end shops. Restau­rants of­fer­ing in­ter­na­tional cui­sine and au­then­tic lo­cal food line the street as well – fika (cof­fee break) is an in­alien­able part of daily life in Swe­den. Street per­form­ers pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment for free. Shops nor­mally open from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM Mon­day-Fri­day, and 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM Satur­day and Sun­day.
