Info about the main shopping streets in the Old Town
The main shopping streets, but there are shops in other streets as well, are Västerlånggatan, Österlånggatan, Köpmangatan, Stora Nygatan and Lilla Nygatan. We have marked them all at the map below.
If you live outside EU you might be qualified for getting the Swedish VAT returned (Tax Free shopping) when shopping in a store. The first step is to look for the Tax Free shopping sign (above) outside the store. The VAT refund is made when you leave Sweden at the Border control. If you are a citizen of Norway or Åland there are special conditions for Tax Free shopping, you can read about it here (Swedish only).
