OUR PORT

Helsingborg has a long history as a cruise destination. One reason is the city’s ideal location: at the gateway to the Baltic cruising region and only two hours’ slow steaming from Copenhagen.

Most cruise lines have visited us – and they keep coming back! That is the best endorsement we could ask for and it puts us on the map as a well-established and very popular cruise destination.

Helsingborg is a very old port city and an important logistical hub. It is one of the largest container ports in Sweden and handles cargo from all over the world. Ferries cross the strait to Denmark and Hamlet’s Kronborg Castle every fifteen minutes.

Helsingborg fits perfectly into your itinerary, depending on the experience you want to give your guests: Norwegian fjords ending up in Copenhagen, going for St. Petersburg and back to Copenhagen again, or the capitals of Scandinavia but including a destination with small-town charm.
 
We are proud to say that we are very well equipped to welcome unexpected ships at short notice. In 2015, within a period of two weeks, two ships made unexpected – but very welcome – calls at Helsingborg.
