Train Travel

by annerothweiler

Greetings! I am planning a travel from Helsingborg to Oslo, and I am having a hard time getting train information. Any suggestions on where I can look?

If you want to go by coach, try http://www.swebusexpress.se/tabeller/aktuella.asp

If by more expensive but quicker train: http://www.linx.se/default.aspx?id=2096

There is also a ferry (Copenhagen)-Helsingborg-Oslo but that's slow and expensive and just for the cruising experience...DFDS Scandinavian Seaways...

Oups, now I saw that train was your alternative...just check Linx then :-)

I suggest that you visit www.sj.se and in the field that says 'Från' type Helsingborg C and the field that says 'Till' type Oslo S. the Linx train goes very fast but are quite expencive. I should recomend DFDS Seaways ferries from Helsingborg to Oslo! They are really nice!

Linx has already died a death - you have to use the ordinary trains via Gothenburg.

Travel Tips for Helsingborg

Seaside strolling

by Sjalen

From the pier between Dunkers and the Central station/Ferry terminal, you have a great view and several benches to rest on whilst overseeing all activity in the strait. You can also walk north from the Bo01 area if you fancy a stroll. Eventually, you get to the nice beach and swim house (which I hope won't disappear because of the building of a luxury hotel in future as I have read). All the time you have boats of all kinds to look at. Absolutely wonderful on a sunny day.

Gantofta sharpening stones

by Sjalen

An amazing site in a small nature reserve along the Råå river, this is a site where stone age people sharpened their knives and tools in the extremely soft sandstone. Amazing patterns have been made in the stone and the setting by the very lush small riverside makes it even more mysterious.

Karnan - The Tower in Helsingborg

by littlesam1

Probably the best known symbol of Helsingborg is this tower (Karnan). The tower is a part of the what remains of the 600 year old fortress that once protected the town. The tower is 35 meters high and the walls are approx 4.5 meters thick. Near the tower you will also find Nicolaiskolan High School.

Kärnan Fortress

by Sjalen

The "kernel" is a well known symbol for Helsingborg and you can see it on my intro photo (not the City Hall tower). More than 600 years old, it had its heyday in medieval times but then almost fell into disrepair in the 16th century until the Danes who then held this province decided to repair it during the wars with Sweden. Once Skåne fell into Swedish hands, the whole fortress apart from the tower was dismantled in the "peace process". Today, you can walk up long stairs from Stortorget, this way of approaching it was created in the 19th century so that the people of Helsingborg could enjoy the marvellous views across the strait. SEK 20 entrance fee.

St. Mary's Church

by ginte

The oldest part of Helsingborg lay on the top of the cliffs. Due to the abundance of herring in the Sound during the Middle Ages the shores below were taken over by fishermen, and a small Norman-style sandstone chapel was built for them. When the population grew and became more permanent the chapel was replaced by St. Mary's Church (Mariakyrkan), still in use today. Building work started at the beginning of the 14th century, and the church was completed just over one hundred years later. The exterior is a beautiful example of Danish Gothic brickwork.
