Helsingør City Walk & 10 "Must See" Attractions

Elsinore Historical City Walk

Elsinore City Walk Describes the story of Sound Customs City,   who inspired William Shakespeare to write his most famous spectacle game, Hamlet.

As pearls on a string lies one well-preserved and lovingly restored building after another in a right-angled, chess-like street of Erik of Pomeranian - 1400s. The architectural appearance of the individual houses shows style features from the 14th to 1500th century to the present.

The route tells us how Sund Customs 400 years ago made Elsinore one of the   Europe's and Denmark's leading cities and inspired William Shakespeare to write his most famous sight game, Hamlet. , - about H. C. Andersen's upbringing, education and schooling in Elsinore from 1828 to 1829.   - Elsinore's strategic location and importance for shipping and trade.

Are you a tourist guide or at city walk with a group you can print Elsinore City Walk folder from a PDF file. If you are near a tourist office, they would like to print the folder for you.
