Elsinore : Michelin's recommendations
Helsingør, 45km north of Copenhagen (København), is a busy tourist and commercial centre as well as a thriving port. It owes its prosperity to its strategic position beside the strait that separates Denmark from Sweden, with the Swedish port of Helsingborg only 4km away. Its castle, Elsinore, a symbol of Danish sea power, is known across the globe as the setting chosen by Shakespeare for his tragedy Hamlet.
