Ringsted has a number of specialty shops. A covered shopping center, Ringsted Centret, Nørregade 15 (tel. 57-67-38-05), stands right in the middle of town, enabling you to shop and browse without having to worry about the weather. This is where you'll find the widest array of Danish products in various stores. The best place to go for copies of the Dagmar Cross is Klints Guld & Sølv, Torvet 2 (tel. 57-61-01-83). The cross comes in gold, silver, and gold with enamel. In 1683 the cross -- believed to date from 1000 -- was discovered when Queen Dagmar's tomb site was moved. Today nearly all brides married in Ringsted wear a reproduction of this cross, which makes an intriguing piece of jewelry even if you aren't a bride.
