"Helsingborg sparkles like a pearl in the sun. The sea air and big ferries that sail right into the heart of the city create a very special atmosphere. Everything is within reach here, and there is a lovely mix of a sophisticated city and charming, small-town idyll. This is a city of opportunities, whether you are here on holiday, to study or attending a conference. Stroll along the streets of Helsingborg, stop at an outdoor restaurant and gaze out over the sea: it's a wonderful experience.

There are lots of great experiences here for young and old all the year round. Enjoy beautiful gardens, Continental shopping, lovely beaches, rich cultural life and exciting destinations. Beautiful experiences should always be combined with good food and drink. Our master chefs prepare culinary delicacies with tastes from around the world. The lively nightlife is varied and there are lovely temptations round every corner. Helsingborg was made for experiences, and there is no doubt that it is the 'Pearl of the Sound'! A warm welcome!"
