"HELSINGOR OR ELSINOR" Top 5 Page for this destination Helsingør by balhannah

Helsingør Travel Guide: 141 reviews and 424 photos

Helsingor is located on the northeast coast of the island of Zealand in eastern Denmark. The town is also known as “Elsinore” and lies about 45 kms north of Copenhagen.

It is in quite a nice location, surrounded by the stretch of water [oresund] between Denmark and Sweden.

Helsingor is the closest Danish city to Sweden.

The Cities of Helsingor, Denmark and Helsingborg, Sweden are separated by 2.5 miles of water and a short ferry ride of 20 minutes.


Helsingor is a very historical place with many well preserved buildings, cobblestone streets, castles, museums, churches and beaches.

We enjoyed Helsingor and were glad we came!

From here, we caught the Train to HILLEROD.

It is quite easy to see Frederiksborg & Kronborg Castle's in the one day, just remember to leave enough time though!

    Thank you Dee for bringing back memory about Helsingor and Kronborg. Unfortunately I couldn't get inside the castle because of lack of time. Hope come back again...

      I hope you get back too! At least not so far for you to go as for me!
