“Typical multipurpose harbor”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Helsingør harbour is principally a Ferry port over the Oresund between Helsingør DK and Helsingborg in Sweden. It also houses a municipal yachting harbour with about 1000 berths. Originally built as a fishing port and yachting harbour by the municipality of Helsingør dating back to the 1930s, and was enlarged to its present size in the 1970s.

“Ferry harbour”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

You can take the ferry to Sweden, it's only a 20 minute passage. For the rest there is not much to see in this harbour.

“Heritage and a reupdated location . . .”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

For sure be aware of castle "Kronborg". A wunder..
At the harboer the danes used to build ships, but now a days most ships are built in Korea.
So the architect did put the old buildings around the former dock together with new architecture and looks wondefull and very modern.
It's all close by the city and the walkstreets. Elsinore is a visit worth.. then don't forget the ferries to Sweden.. going fort and back all day .. you are close to Sweden

“A ferry every five minutes”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Situated at the narrowest point of Oeresund seperating Denmark and Sweden it is only natural that Helsingoer Port is an important ferry port, whereas merchant vessels and fishing boats belong to the past. With tree ferry operators it is true that a ferry is either arriving or leaving every five minutes on its 20 minutes crossing.

From the port you have a nice view to Kronborg Castle and the new local cultural centre 'Kulturvaerftet' in updated buildings of the former shipyard where you, maybee while enjoying a cup of coffee or a refreshment can enjoy the view of a 5 m long model of one of the passenger ships built here around 1950 - The Copenhagen - Oslo ferry Kronprins Olav.

In one of the dry docks work is ongoing finishing the danish Maritime Museum.

“A walk through”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

A nice harbour, very picturesque in parts, not a lot happens, except ferry, the walk around to the new cultural development and Kronborg castle is nice.

Once the Maritime museum is complete this will be even better
