Helsingborg, Sweden Cruise Port

The cruise port of Helsingborg, one of the oldest cities of what is now Sweden, is a small and quaint town sitting on the shores of the Oresund, the four mile narrow strait connecting Sweden and Denmark. As the gateway to Sweden's beautiful Skane County, this old medieval town was incorporated into Sweden in 1658 and totally destroyed by the Danes in 1710 but was rebuilt with a surviving center tower (the Keep) of Helsingborg Castle and the Town Hall. Marvel at the views across the Oresund Strait, stroll into the historic part of the scenic coastal city with its old-style stone-built churches and 600-year-old medieval fortress.
 
  • The lush gardens of Sofiero Palace contain more than 10,000 rhododendrons stretching to the shore of Oresund. As the main attraction of the palace, it beautifies the environment and makes it a great place to take a nice, long, relaxing stroll. The palace was the opulent former residence of Sweden’s royal family. Get lost in nature as you tour this amazing green space.
     
  • For all medieval enthusiasts, be sure to check out the oldest building in Helsingborg. Karnan is a great place to learn the history and culture and ancient settlers in a tranquil setting of a once great medieval fortress. Just a few miles away from the cruise terminal, you will get a great view of the cruise port of Helsingborg, Sweden and beyond, but not before a challenging climb up the fleet of stairs. It’s worth it!
     
  • On your cruise to Helsingborg, Sweden head over to the mini zoo known as Tropikariet with several animal species from tropical countries. Interact with the monkeys and birds, and have lemurs jump on your shoulders.
