This is not a compelling reason to come to Hillerød, but you might be surprised at how many goods there are to buy. In the town center is the sprawling SlotsArkaderne shopping center, close to Frederiksborg Castle, with an entrance on Nordstensvej. Its distinctive interior design has been hailed throughout Denmark. It is definitely shopper-friendly. Within the center are some 50 specialty shops, in one of the most beautiful shopping malls in Europe. Open Monday to Friday 10am to 7pm and Saturday 10am to 4pm.

There are a number of specialty stores throughout the town. Right in front of the castle, Sweater House, Slangerupgade 1 (tel. 48-25-51-25), offers the town's best selection of Scandinavian sweaters, often in blue-and-white patterns. Because Danish toys enjoy world renown, you might want to check out the selection at Fætter BR, SlotsArkaderne 27 (tel. 48-26-07-55).
