The walking street in Næstved

Charming commercial towns

If you want to spice up the holiday with some shopping, then visit one of South Zealand’s and Møn’s charming commercial towns Næstved, Præstø, Vordingborg, Store Heddinge or Stege, which all entice with both well-known chain stores and a good selection of local speciality shops.

Shopping in Næstved  
With over 150 speciality shops, Næstved is the region’s biggest and liveliest shopping town. The town’s many shops and charming town centre are perfect for window shopping. Every Wednesday and Saturday is market day in the town square, Axeltorv, and about every other month “City Night” is held with extra long shop opening hours.

In Næstved City, there are more than 2,000 free parking spaces and if they are all full, you can always get a space for the car at one of the three pay car parks in the town.

Shopping in Stege 
Møns charming capital Stege, which in 2018 will celebrate its 750-year anniversary of being a market town, is steeped in history, authenticity and great atmosphere. The old market town is still an attractive commercial town and is also a great “out-in-the-town” place with many cosy cafes and restaurants. The town is beautifully situated overlooking Stege Bay and Stege Nor lake, so if you need a rest, it can easily be done with a beautiful view. The town also has its own brewery, Bryghuset Møn, where all year round you can enjoy a draught beer.

Torvet and Storegade make up the town’s centre and where you can find most of the shops. It is also the setting for the many activities and events that take place in Stege throughout the year - including the famous and very popular “Tuesday Market” that takes place five Tuesdays in a row starting on the first Tuesday in July.

Shopping in Store Heddinge 
Store Heddinge, located in the middle of Stevns, with its 3,400 inhabitants, calls itself “Denmark’s smallest market town”, but this definitely does not make the town unattractive as a commercial centre. There are both grocery shops and many speciality shops, where you can do your shopping in charming and manageable surroundings. Every Saturday from May to September you can also get a great bargain if you visit the town’s flea market, which takes place on Store Heddinges charming square.

Shopping in Præstø
Præstø is a very charming market town that not only offers beautiful old houses and quaint, cobbled streets, but also plenty of shopping and many good restaurants - including the Michelin-starred restaurant at Hotel Frederiksminde. Most of the town’s shops are on Adelgade in the middle of the old town, where you can easily browse for many hours. You experience the town’s best historical authenticity in Grønnegade and Klosternakken and on Torvet, which connects the two streets. There are virtually no shops here, but cobblestones, buildings worthy of preservation and old style street lamps. Although the trip is about shopping, you must make a detour to this quaint neighbourhood.

Præstø has many activities to entice you. In May you can, for example, experience “French Spring”- three festive market days with local and international delicacies, as well as arts, crafts and lots of atmosphere and good music. In July, Præstø is the home each year to South Zealand’s largest flea market that spreads over most of the town. 

Shopping in Vordingborg 
With its 12,000 inhabitants, Vordingborg is the main town in Vordingborg Municipality. The best shopping can be found on the town’s long pedestrian street. For those looking to shop, there is always something to get on a stroll along the pedestrian street, which hosts many festive activities throughout the year. In connection with Vordingborg Festival Week, which always takes place in week 28, many of the pedestrian street’s shops have plenty of, for example, attractive festival week offers.
