Hötorget metro station is a station on the green line of the Stockholm metro, located by Hötorget in Norrmalm, central Stockholm. The station was inaugurated on 26 October 1952 and its 1950s signage and decor have been deliberately retained.[1] It was called Kungsgatan until 1957. The name was changed to Hötorget when the southern and western tracks were joined as one (by the opening of the stations T-centralen and Gamla Stan through the central city). The distance to Slussen is 1.5 km.
