Next to the Saluhallen (market hall)
Submitted by: Ethan Kent
A special neighborhood square with a market and independent restaurants.
Since the over design and resulting decline of Kungstagarden, this has perhaps become Stockholm's best square. Anchored by a beautiful market hall (Saluhallen), this square is a neighborhood destination. A flexible space, the uses on the square are responsive to the neighborhood and the changing seasons.
Three different restaurants serve different clientele and expand and contract depending on the weather. A covered market area draws regular activity and complements that gourmet food of the Saluhallen with plants and crafts. The provocative public art is a good place to meet people, watch people, or be the entertainment.
What Makes Östermalmstorg a Great Place?
The center of a neighborhood.
A quiet and comfortable place to be.
Not a busy or noisy square, there is still something to attract most anyone.
Tourists, lovers, shoppers, neigherhood residents, young and old can all be seen here throughout the day.
