Axeltorv, to the west of Skt. Anna Gade, is the bustling hub of Helsingor. There's a fine fountain by Einar Utzon-Frank (1926) erected in memory of King Eric of Pomerania who gave Helsingor its original charter. 

Markets are held at Axeltorv on Wednesdays and Sundays, and from May to October, there's also an antique market each Friday. Just a couple of minutes' walk away in this medieval part of town is the popular street of Stengade with plenty of places to eat and shop.
