Helsingør in Denmark is both popular for the people and for the proximity to other major tourist destinations. Whether you’re visiting the city by train, bus or car, keep these transportation in minds.
Ferries and Trains to Helsingør
Ferries and trains are the two most common ways to get to this port city. With Helsingør being so close to Sweden, you can take the ferry that leaves every half hour from the train station. You can take your car with you, and you’ll be across the border in just 20 minutes. The main train station has two terminals that are adjacent to each other. One is for national trains and the other for privately owned trains that will take you up and down the North coast. The major station (DSB) will take you to Hillerod or Copenhagen, with the trains running every hour or less until midnight. If you’re coming from Copenhagen, you can get to Helsingør by the main station in Copenhagen (platform 4.) It’s a very pretty journey, so you might want to take a camera.
Bikes and Cars
You can also drive the highway system if you’ve rented a car in Denmark. The roads should be fairly easy to navigate, plus you can make your own schedule and shave off a few minutes of transportation time if there’s no traffic. There are places to park if you’re planning to visit the popular castle in the visit, so pay attention to the signs and the maps as it can be easy to miss. Also, once you’re in town, you can take a bike or walk to get to the major attractions.
