Beauty, culture and picturesque views - Helsingborg has it all. The narrow streets in the heart of the town mix perfectly with a beautiful waterfront promenade lined by restaurants and galleries. In a single day, visitors can enjoy the culture and nature of two countries, Sweden and Denmark, at a leisurely pace. Helsingborg is situated at the narrowest point of the Oresound, right across from Elsinore, making it possible to peruse sights of both towns, with only a short boat ride of travel. Culture, amazing parks and flower gardens, design and the promenade are key factors of the Helsingborg charm.
