One my favourite experiences in Denmark was a day trip to Helsingør, or Elsinore in English. A train from Copenhagen to Helsingør takes around 40 minutes and will set you back 15€ (100 Danish Krone) each way.
This picturesque coastal town is home to Kronberg Castle– Shakespeare’s inspiration for Hamlet. Helsingør also boasts a beautiful old town, which feels remarkably peaceful after Copenhagen’s busy streets. Large green-topped churches provide a pretty backdrop for the skyline.
A relatively new addition to the town is the Culture Yard which houses a superb library, cafes, communal spaces, a rooftop lookout and many events both. The center is located next to the restored harbour area. At the back of the Yard you’ll find an indoor/outdoor food market with a large range of delicious food and drink.
Here are some of my photos from this wonderful day trip
