Fancy a shopping spree?
Short distances, free parking and a colourful mix of specialist shops, owner-managed retail shops, boutiques and well-known chain stores - that's what Schleswig stands for.
Whether you find your new favourite outfit in the city or buy it at a discount store in one of the classical business parks, try organic products at the weekly market or find what you're looking for at the DIY store - whoever buys in Schleswig is well advised. The choice is large, parking is simple and free and the mood is relaxed and jolly.
In the Viking age goods usually were exchanged for goods.
However, in addition various means of payment circulated in the market. A proficient trader therefore kept several currencies in his leather bag - coins made of silver sheet, beads made of glass, or silver bars which were chopped up to meet a specific price.
Nowadays the currency of the modern Viking city of Schleswig is the Viking cheque. The cheques – with possible values of 5, 10, 20 or 50 Euros - are accepted for payment at more than 60 trading points and shops in Schleswig - and makes a wonderful idea for a present!
