Town Hall, Helsingborg
One of the most prominent buildings when you depart the ferry in Helsingborg is the Town Hall. It was build in 1897, the same year my grandmother was born. So this struck a note with me. The bell tower is 68 meters high and captures your attention at first glance.
Helsingborg Town Hall is one of the most magnificent Town Halls in Sweden and easily recognisable. It can be visited at certain times but check at the tourist office for exact times if you are interested in architecture. You can also listen to the carillion several times a day.
Helsingborg's majestic Town Hall (Rådhuset) is located next to the main square (Stortorget). It was built in neo-Gothic style, with towers and pinnacles, lavishly decorated facades and a 65-metre-high bell tower, from which melodies can be heard across the city at 09.00, 12.00, 15.00, 18.00 and 21.00 every day. The Town Hall, completed in 1897, was designed by the architect Alfred Hellerström.

In the late 19th century, Helsingborg was a prominent seaport in the area. To show off it's greatness, a new city hall was built. The gothic building has lots of towers and pinnacles and is today the second most famous building in Helsingborg (after the tower Kärnan). A couple of times a day, the clock tower plays short melodies. Be sure to be there when it does.
Personal view: I really liked the top of the Town Hall tower. Great architecture and nice decorations!
The city hall. There are guided tours in the summer. In the Winter, though, you will not get further than the reception without business in the house.
