Östermalm Antiques Hunting Walk (Self Guided), Stockholm

Östermalm is the most famous area in Stockholm for antique treasures. Whether you’re a serious collector, are looking for a unique find for the home or just appreciate a piece of history in your hands, don't leave the city without investigating this neighborhood's fantastic antique shops.

Some of the vintage and historical objects were brought into the city during the 17th century by Swedish officers. They carried vast quantities of war loot with them on their way back from central Europe. These items subsequently passed through several generations of families before being put out for sale on the antiques market. Most of the pieces are in a superb condition. Browse stores for old paintings, jewelry, glassware, maps, rugs and more. Among them are some of the most exclusive antiques in the Swedish capital, as well as antique furniture from such periods as Baroque, Rococo and Gustavian.

For high-end antiques, crafts and jewelry, explore the shops on Kommendörsgatan. There are more antique shops as well as the auction house Stockholms Auktionsverk on Nybrogatan. In addition to the rich collection of antiques at Östermalm, there are also several design and home wear boutiques, selling handmade jewelry, retro lighting, textiles, ceramics and glassware.
