The city of Helsingborg is perfectly nestled between Copenhagen, Malmö, and Gothenburg making it a great and unique place to experience Swedish life. There’s plenty to do without the city feeling overwhelming.
Helsingborg becomes a vacation hotspot for many Swedes, Danes, and Germans during the summer. While the beaches are great during the summer, they become increasingly cozier during the fall and late spring. The beach and harbor are scattered with great restaurants, cafes and shops all with wonderful views. If you are visiting the city during the winter, most eateries offer blankets to patrons, so you can enjoy slowing down while being bundled up and cozy. A local favorite ice cream shop, Helsingborgs Glassfabrik, or more commonly known as “the ice cream bus” since their store is an old-school American school bus is smartly situated at the beginning of the harbor walk so one can enjoy homemade ice cream as you walk along the harbor and to the beach. Gröningen is a large green area beside the beach where you can set up barbeques, picnics or just sit and enjoy the waves all year long.
