August 9 in Helsingor

We will be on a Princess cruise and in Helsingor from only 9:00 AM till 11:00 AM. Is there anything to do in just two hours? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Sure, take a guided tour at Kronborg Castle, it's right next to the pier. Or just take a walk down the main shoppingstreet 'stengade' with lots of cafés, shoppingstores etc. It's a very cute and lovely town, and it has a lot of old crooked houses like you'll never seen before. That is right next to the habour as well.

Thanks so much skywalkerssister. We will definitely get off the ship and check out Helsingor. It sounds like a charming little town.

You should definitely consider the tour of Kronborg, if there are no guided tours available, just walk around the castle and enjoy the views of the city.

If it's raining and you don't feel like walking around the castle, just walk around the streets and enjoy the atmosphere. The center of town is a pedistratian zone and has pretty townhouse style buildings in various colours. Very Danish.

If you want to check out a very local place for a coffee and maybe find shelter for the rain (it's been raining a lot lately here) go to "Rådmand Davids hus" in Strandgade. It's very near the pier and the trainstation they serve good coffee and cakes.

Address: Strandgade 70.

thanks again for your help. I just found out that we can't get off the ship there unless we have a scheduled tour from Princess cruises. I guess because it is for such a short time. Sounds like a great place to visit though.
