Here it’s always weekend. At least if you consider weekend to be long, lovely days with genuine enjoyment. There are plenty of things to do in Helsingborg. Choose from wild nature and well-groomed gardens or parks. Visit some of the city’s White Guide-listed restaurants. Go to the theatre, concerts and top-class art museums. Or catch the ferry to Elsinore. Here you will find a selection of wonderful experiences in and around Helsingborg. If you would like to know more about what Helsingborg can offer, go to Visit Helsingborg.
There are many cultural options in Helsingborg. Dunkers kulturhus, Helsingborgs Konserthus and Helsingborgs stadsteater offer a varied and top-class selection. On the Danish side of the Öresund, only a short ferry-trip away, you can visit Hamlet’s castle Kronborg. The art-lover can easily continue on to the Louisiana Modern Museum of Modern Art , with an incredible location just by the water, for a wonderful experience.
What could be more romantic than a palace garden? Sofiero’s vast park includes well-groomed flowerbeds, art experiences, running-friendly lawns and wild nature. The gullies around the castle have one of Europe’s most beautiful collections of rhododendron, with more than 400 species. Sofiero is happy to tailor a visit according to your needs and requests.
It is difficult to not fall in love with Fredriksdals museum and gardens, a green oasis in the middle of the city. To step in here, is like visiting Skåne in the olden days. Say hello to the animals in the stable, join the ladies of the estates for a tour and enjoy a coffee under the apple tree when you need to refill your energy. Fredriksdal offers many guided tours for groups.
Helsingborg and the surrounding region is without exaggerating, an important hub for top-class food and produce. The sea provides us with seafood and the fertile plains give us grains, vegetables, meat and dairy. Helsingborg is also home to a large number of ambitious and award-winning restaurants. The city also offers a number of other wonderful specialities.
The brewery in Helsingborg dates back to the middle of the 19th century. If you book a guided tour, you are taken on an exciting and pleasant journey through Scanian brewery history, ending with beer tasting up on the brewery’s cosy attic. A must for the bon vivant!
The cheese shop on Ålgränden is something of an institution among the locals. Here you find locally produced cheese from small, local dairies, as well as selected classics. Ålgrändens ost & delikatesser is located right in central Helsingborg and it is possible to book a wonderful cheese and wine tasting session. A perfect start to a lovely evening.
If you are a liquorice-lover, we would recommend a visit to Lakritsfabriken . Browse the premium liquorice, made from the very best ingredients. Book a tasting on their homepage and you get an interesting lecture on liquorice history and you also get to try some of their products.
The locals love traversing across the sound and enjoying the Danish delicacies on board the ferries, not to mention the lovely view from the sun deck. If you want to do what the locals do, hop on the ferry and go back and forth. You have plenty of time to try pølser and øl – (sausages and beer) or as we say: “two red and one green”.
