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. Find what you're looking for from your Helsingborg holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Sweden vacation generator.

Where to stay

Unlike many Swedish cities, this harborfront town offers abundant bed and breakfasts and guesthouses. In this pedestrian-dominated city, most travelers prefer to be closer to the city core for convenience and access to the long paths along the shore. A number of reasonably priced, mid-market hotels line the main street. There are also a couple hostels. Note that it is customary to pay an extra charge for linens and towels at Swedish hostels.
