Helsingor

Google Maps: Helsingor, Denmark
Trip: Copenhagen > Helsingor > Copenhagen

We reached Helsingor at 4 PM. That may well be enough to tell what we were able to do there. What we managed was visit to a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a couple of miles walk in the windiest of conditions.

The Kronborg castle was majestic with huge walls and surrounding water bodies. We walked around the castle and took pictures in rounds.

The city of Helsingborg right across the sea was equally beautiful. We were not able to enter the castle because it is under renovation. We settled for the sea-facing wall of the castle and took loads of pictures.

Outside we saw a plaque which said that this very castle was the set for Shakespeare's Hamlet. The surrounding city does have retro feeling to it.

We settled for a stroll back to the station when we found that the wind was pleasant yet unbearable. The train was swift and brought us back to Copenhagen within 45 minutes reminding me again that Denmark is such a small country.
