  • It's good if you want some shopping, but it's not very personal or interesting. It's more an afficient shopping place. The structure it self is really boring. 
  • Huge Mall, you will find all the usual marks observed in Sweden (Lindex, H & M, Vero Moda, Ahlens etc.). Many places to eat, something for everyone. Pleasant Saturday afternoon entertainment (fashion show and DJ).

  • A centrally located big mall selling the same stuff mall all over do. Don't bother going before 10 am, the shops are closed till then. 
  • It has a good selection of garment shops and some restaurants inside (I would recommend to eat at the restaurant Saigon Asian Street Food under Saigon City Food , it has a good Vietnamese food at good price). It´s convenient to get there by intercity buses and trains as the mall is right beside the city station. Many of the local buses and trams stop just outside the mall so it is easy to get there if you are in town as well.
  • Noisy, crowdy n thieves all over the place in summertime. Hold on to Your stuff dude! A lot off stressed up grownups but at least there are three nice stores for Junior in alphabetic order: Br, Lekia n Åhléns store meaning children's department of course!:)
  • Very central to Gothenburg is this large shopping mall where you can find all kinds of stores and get information about the city within a couple city blocks, under one roof! There are restaurants, electronics stores, clothing stores, tourist information, etc. Free WiFi can be used at multiple Pressbyrån locations in the mall and central station within a very short distance.
  • Nordstan has it all with its 306 700 m², varying stores from clothing, jewellery, restaurangs, pubs, hotel and much more. Nordstan Area even has the second biggest Apple store in Europe with is 1 600 m². Whether you're seeking for something specific/special or just looking around, Nordstan has it all. It has over 200 stores and many more stores and office buildings around the area. Whenever I'm seeking for a gift or things that I'm unable to find else where then Nordstan is the place to go. I promise you won't leave empty handed and I'm not the type of guy that's a big shopper. Nordstan has easy public transport(trams) that takes you straight into the heart of the area. Nordstan also has a huge parking garage that can fit 2 700 cars and I have never had any problem with parking. However, I would highly recommend to avoid Nordstan days before a holiday, because that's when everyone remebers they need to buy gifts. It can be a bit tricky to get in and out of Nordstan onto the freeway during rush hour if you're unfamiliar with the area, so I would recommend to plan ahead. Cons: Some weekends specially with good weather there's going to be a lot of people, the area is big so it shouldn't be a problem. If you want to go to public toilets, prepare to have some coin change as it's usually not free. It is by far not the prettiest mall I've seen but it sure post it purpose. Something that I dislike highly is the amount of beggars trying to use people's pity to gain money, the gangs or whoever controls them clearly picks the people that are disabled and such*, just because we shall feel pity to them. I'm not a big fan of people usage and having beggars walking around a mall. Other than this, if you're in the town and seeking a place to shop then this is the spot. * There's a whole documentary about this and even the court has taken up this
  • For most people, Nordstan is the de facto center of Gothenburg. You can find almost anything here, but be prepared for some serious crowding. Also, make sure you keep your valuables in check.
