DK-3000 Helsingør

Helsingør is located in the north of the Danish island of Sealand, at the narrowest point of the Øresund, connected with Sweden (only 4 km away) via the world’s busiest ferry line. Thus, it is at the most important connection between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.

The city’s wealthiness, clearly visible in the old town, dates from introduction of the Sound Dues in 1429 - a toll every foreign ship passing by had to pay for the next almost 430 years. This toll constituted at times up to two thirds of Denmark‘s state income. Helsingør is rich in history and culture. It is probably best known for the UNESCO World Heritage site Kronborg Castle. William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet is settled right here.

Helsingør is also home to two world-renowned museums, the Shipping Museum and the nearby Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. The Karen Blixen Museum, offering a unique insight into the life of the Danish writer, is also close to the city. The old harbour area has turned into Kulturhavn Kronborg, literally „Cultural harbour of Kronborg“. Several beaches are also nearby.
