Do & See
Helsingborg is a city full of beauty. Architectural sights that extend from the early Middle Ages via the functional style to the present day. The city is also full of history – old and modern, Danish and Swedish. Dunkers Kulturhus, Fredriksdal, Kulturmagasinet, Kärnan and Sofiero tell some of the story. Other locations and museums give an account of different occupations and industries – the rubber factory, fishing, the printing works, the stoneware factories etc. This and much besides can be found in the independent museums. Welcome!


The defensive watchtower, Kärnan, is the symbol of Helsingborg and it has kept watch over the city for almost 700 years. At a height of 34 metres the top offers a ravishing view over the city and the Danish coast. Kärnan is what remains of the mighty Helsingborg castle. Kärnan is some 35 metres high and getting up to the top and enjoying the magnificent views over the port, the Sound and Helsingör is worth every single step. On the way up you get an exciting history lesson on the city’s heyday during the Middle Ages
