Opening hours and parking spaces in the city centre

How long are the shops open in the city centre? Are all shops open for as long? Where are parking spaces and how much does it cost to park? These are questions we often get through social media or over the counter at our tourist centre. Here we have gathered the information we think you need most.


Recommended opening hours are the times that most shops are open in the centre. Differences can of course occur, so for exact opening hours for each shop we refer to their own channels.
