Helsingborg

4

Pearl of the Strait

A scenic coastal city known for its lively waterfront area overlooked by a medieval castle, Helsingborg considers itself Sweden's gateway to Europe. Located in a strategically important position that caused many battles during a succession of bloody Swedish-Danish wars, Helsingborg sits on Sweden's southwestern coastline, just 4 km (2 mi) from the shores of Denmark. Differences long resolved, the city remains inextricably linked to Denmark by a busy ferry service that's used by nearly 14 million passengers each year. Although it remains a mostly industrial city, Helsingborg offers visitors a modern city center of tree-lined streets and pedestrian-friendly alleyways lined by museums, shops, bars, and restaurants. Helsingborg is in Skane County. Find what you're looking for from your Helsingborg holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Sweden trip tool .
