Helsingør, DenmarkJuly 3, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C
Day 2 We took the train to Helsingør, also known as Elsinore, a port city in eastern Denmark. Staff at Central Station recommended this trip to us. It was a lot bigger than we expected. Overlooking the Øresund strait, the 15th-century Kronborg Castle provided the setting for Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Nearby, the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark illustrates 600 years of Danish seafaring history. On the pier is “Han,” a polished steel sculpture of a man. Lots of clothes and jewellery stores and cafés - lots of tourists too, but not enough to be uncomfortable. It is a beautiful port and well worth the visit. It has a regular ferry service to Sweden which we were tempted to take but we thought you probably needed to show passports and we didn't have ours with us. It only takes about 15 minutes to get to Sweden - you can see it from the port. It was a lovely day for our last day in Denmark, cold and windy again, but lovely!
Tomorrow, we make our way to the Cruise Terminal to begin our 9-day Baltic cruise.Read more
