Shopping Mall · Hidden Gem · Shopping
Nordstan is a shopping centre in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is the largest shopping centre in Sweden in terms of revenue, and with approximately 180 shops and 150 offices. The shopping centre's total area is about 320,000 m2 (3,400,000 sq ft) divided into nine interconnected buildings, where retail and restaurant floor space makes up around 70,000 m2 (750,000 sq ft). The covered streets and squares comprise 8,000 m2 (86,000 sq ft). The companies housed in Nordstan employ approximately six thousand people and the total annual turnover was SEK 4.1 billion in 2013. The main passageways in the centre are public spaces and therefore are open for use after shops have closed. The character of the centre changes after closing time of the shops. The presence of adults is drastically reduced and the premises become a hangout for youth.

  • Dirty and dodgy place to go shopping. Many Arabs selling drugs and smoking in doors which was surprising along with the air of danger. The toilets are very expensive and filthy. Keep away!  more »
  • Bloomin awful! I loathe this place. Full of wannabe immigration with eyes widened by cheap western capatalist crap. No, bombs or such like but lots of lost souls.  more »
  • Amazing how a junction converted in to a shopping mall. You will love this place it has everything you need to eat wear and sleep with 2-3 hotels at corners.
  • It’s quite a spacious and busy shopping centre that has everything that you need and are looking for. There’s also a tourist information booth right smack dab in the middle of the shopping centre. It’s also next to the central station, which is the main hub for the bus and train station in Gothenburg. The reason why I knocked out a star is because they charge patrons for washroom, which is ridiculous in my opinion.
