There were some souvenir stores in the Old Town but the only shopping for us in Helsingor was at a supermarket! :)
We preferred to buy some things for our picnic at KVICKLY, a super market located a block away from the main square. A bottle of wine, some beers and seafood and we were ready to enjoy the sunny day…
By the way we were surprised of how many different fresh milks they had
it is open monday to saturday 9-20.00
Because of the huge difference between Swedish and Danish beer prices the Swedish beer afficiandos (ie drunks like me) find it economical to do their shopping here in Helsingor. At the dock is a beer seller who shifts the stuff by the crate, or even by the pallet load. Though I reckon if buying by the pallet I think you have to provide your own fork-lift truck ;)
What to buy: BEER!
What to pay: A Lot Cheaper Than In Sweden (and stronger stuff!).
Swedish come to Helsingor to buy alcohol (specially beer) because it is much cheaper than in Sweden.
During the weekends, you find looots of them jumping into the ferries or even crossing the cars in the ferries, coming back full of beers...
Thus, in the streets in Helsingor you can find lots of places to buy alcohol...
In the pedestrian street there are a lot of shops where you can buy antiques, winter clothes and many other things in every price range. They are open until 5:30 pm every day less friday (6pm) and saturday (2pm).
The market place in Helsingor is an open one in front of the Tourist Information. You can buy flowers, vegetables, fish, handicrafts, cheese and souvenirs, but flowers make the sights very beautiful.
If you are German, stop reading. No need to pay more than at home for booze. However, Swedes come here in droves to buy cheap alcohol so this is a common sight in town.
