I loved this harbour. Its really big, and you can walk around the boats, and to the view point. There is also a beach on the other side of the harbour wall. Nearby there is a street food restaurant.

When you visit the castle in Helsingor be sure to walk the town and visit the shops. These are nice happy people with good food and pleasant surroundings.

This is a beautiful place to visit and has many interesting places to see. Too many to list however if you are able to see a boat named "Viking" at port, it offers a mini tour of harbor and surrounding area. A very reasonable price...More

In tve winter not much is going on here. However I can totally recommend a walk (or run) in this area, along the water front. It’s relaxing and sometimes very windy :) The walk will take you from the station to the castle and back...More

The vibrantly colored houses and cobblestone streets take you back into a time when life was much simpler. It also provides a chance for some excellent photo op's. The half day trip to Helsingor Havn and the Castle are a great take.

Yes, it's a very straightforward journey and Helsingor is the end of the line so you can't miss it. Try to pick up a timetable for the return journey in Copenhagen as Helsingor station isn't very user-friendly.
