The Geese Square – the place for buying and selling birds and fowl

If you have chosen the short walking route, you have not yet seen Mølleporten and the old gate for the horseback guardsmen. So, before returning to Storegade, you can walk about 15 metres to the left and see the old town gate, Mølleporten. Just before this you will notice an old gate on the left side of the street, which is the oldest building in Stege (from the 1200s). Behind this gate, the peasants and farmers would put in their wagons and carts before they went to Gåsetorvet – ‘the geese square’ – where they would sell their ducks, geese and chickens.
