Day 2 - I hopped onto a train at Hillerød Station to get to Helsingør. The train ride was about half an hour. I enjoyed the scenic view along the way to Helsingør very much. Kronborg Castle is in the list of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. This 16th-century castle was built by the Danish King, Eric of Pomerania. It was located at an elevation of 12m, on a small foreland jutting out into the narrowest point of the Øresund, which is the sound between Danish island of Zealand and the Swedish province of Scania. Not forgetting to mention, Kronborg Castle is immortalized as Elsinore in the famous tragedy play of William Shakespeare called Hamlet. Taking a stroll along the Helsingør harbour and its town centre on a chillax Saturday is just perfect! There are souvenir shops in the town centre and if you are a postcard collector like me, it is convenient to purchase postcards here because some of the shops do sell stamps too. There are so many restaurants and cafes to pick for lunch and the atmosphere of the town is pretty laid-back, which make it a good choice for a weekend getaway.
