Select Shopping | Sweet-toothed dreams start here

Chocolate is not the only pleasure a person with a sweet tooth can enjoy, and this city is full of alternatives for those who want to try something different, from different types of sweets to advice on how to make your own.

Sømods Bolcher – The history of this shop and the secret recipes go as far back as 1891, so along with tasty treats one gets a taste of a century old tradition. They offer ‘rock candy’ in an astoundingly wide range of varieties. Lots of flavours, sugar-free options, for people with allergies and without, and more. Additionally, on some days, you can take a tour of the place and be treated to some sweet-making demonstrations (sugar folding and the like). But book first.
