We drove 3/4 hour to Helsingborg for lunch.  It is one of the oldest cities in Sweden, dating back to 1085.
From the harbour, Denmark is only 4km's away by boat.

We had a great stroll along the harbour, looking at the different boats and ships that were docked.

At the end of the esplanade was the Dunkers Kulturhus, which was designed by Kim Utzon, the son of Jørn Utzon, who designed the Sydney Opera House.

Then we walked up the hill to the Kärnan, the central tower, built between 1310-1320, of the Helsingborg Castle.  The central tower and part of the gates is all that remains of the castle.

From the top of the gates, you had a great view of Helsingborg, and the red roof tiles.
Part of the city hall building.
