The LO-building at Norra Bantorget

Norra Bantorget ("Northern Railway Square") is an area in central Stockholm. It is the traditional Social Democratic grounds of the Swedish capital. It is the location of the LO headquarters, the Swedish Trade Union Confederation.

At Norra Bantorget is also the Workers Movement's Archive and Library, and August Palm and the Branting Monument. A street in the area is named after Olof Palme.

Norra Bantorget is a traditional gathering spot for demonstrations, such as the ones arranged by the Social Democrats on May Day.

There is also a newly erected four-star Clarion hotel, Clarion Hotel Sign, located on the right side of the square as seen from the LO-building.
