    Jacob Hansen's House

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Because of Helsingborg's strategic defense position, not many historical buildings are left in the city centre as most disappeared in great wars in the 17th century. Councillor Jacob Hansen's House from 1641 is the main exception to this and can be visited at certain hours (otherwise it is mainly used for city conferences and dinners). Gamlegård and Henckel's House in the same area are the other two nice old houses in the same style remaining.

    Built in 1641, Jacob Hansen's house is one of the few houses in Helsingborg remaining from that era. Built in traditional style, it is today situated next to the monument for Tycho Brahe - the famous astronomer who lived on the island Ven in the Sound between Denmark and Sweden.

    During the Skane War, between 1675 and 1679 it was the only residential building spared in the city. Nowadays it is property of the city and is used for differents events.
