There are no lockers for luggage in the train station, ferry terminal or the tourist offices.
You will have to walk 7~10 minutes along the waterfront in the direction of the castle (Kronbog Slot) until you come to the Kulturværftet. The building is open to the public and offers lockers for free (with a 30DKK coin deposit).
But you should confirm the opening hours of this building since it is not open 24hrs! You would not want your bags to be behind locked doors after hours.
The Kulturværftet Helsingør is not far from St. Mariæ Kirke. Its address is:
Favorite thing: Helsingor (English Elsinore) is a town and seaport, eastern Denmark, in Frederiksborg County, Sjelland (Zealand), near Copenhagen. Helsingor is known for its gorgeous Royal Kronborg Castle. Cosy and calm Danish town for to spend a day there.
The city of Helsingor stands in the bottleneck of the Oresund strait. Only 4 kilometers of water separate Denmark from Sweden.
Oresund always was famous for an abundance of fish, and, according to medieval eyewitnesses, there was so many fish that sometimes it prevented vessels to pass the strait. But for not clear reasons fish began to leave to the north.
It was an accident for Denmark because its treasury kept on fishing in medieval times.
Many years ago Danes possessed the territory far reached for present borders of the kingdom. But today distant descendants of Vikings are hardly excited with imperial romanticism or appeals like "returning of the primordial grounds".
They have done fighting in the past in plenty, grasping another's grounds and losing their own. Eventually Danes have acquired the main lesson: it is better to live peacefully, being full up and quiet on the small native land, than to multiply problems and to shed blood, infinitely expanding borders.
The name "Helsingor" is known to each cultural person. There is a castle of "Danish prince" Hamlet .
The true name of the castle - Kronborg ("Fist"). It is not the most magnificent castle in Denmark, but it is considered one of the best samples of the Renaissance.
It was under construction as a powerful fortress on border with Sweden. The garrison of a fortress was obliged to raise so-called "Danish tax" from all ships which were passed on the Oresund passage.
It's not a long way across to Sweden - a few miles, perhaps. There's always been a lot of traffic through these narrows - this is the main nautical passage to the Baltic Sea, with its rich ports and significant hinterlands. For many centuries, furs, lumber, and iron ore (to name only the most important commodities) have come through the Øresund.
When Danish King Frederik II began construction of Helsingør Castle, the Danes still controlled both sides of the Strait. But the Swedes were just about to begin their Golden Century, and by the middle of the 17th Century, the eastern side of the passage had fallen permanently under Swedish control.
Favorite thing: Cheap beer. Swedish people in the south of sweden go here just to buy cheap beer and other alcohol. They usually sell outside the boats and you can also buy a waggon to carry home all your bought beer.
Visiting Kronborg Castle, lots of fishingopportunities for trout and codfish - Perfect beaches and lovely scenery on the whole northern coastline - Visits to Hornbæk and Gilleleje and of course Copenhagen which is only 45 minutes away by train
Fondest memory: I live here and will probally do so for the rest of my life
