Ferries and furniture in Helsingborg
Helsingborg, the city with 900 years of history in the Oresund region, has a population of approximately 135 thousand people. Its proximity to Malmö and Copenhagen and its airport creates additional benefits for businesses here. Actually, Denmark is only 20 minutes away by ferry. More than 70 ferries depart from harbors every day. The HH Ferry route is among the busiest. Shipping, manufacturing, and shipbuilding are important industries in the city. For Instance, IKEA, a world-famous furniture producer, chose the city to set up an international headquarters. Its new “green” building has solar panels and spacious meeting rooms. Even if your company is small and you cannot afford a dedicated office like IKEA, shared office space in a business center might be a perfect solution for your business. It is cost-effective and flexible. Moreover, it offers great networking possibilities, and connections are the most valuable asset in business.
History in Helsingborg
The city is one of the oldest in Sweden. Due to its strategic location, it was always attractive to Danes, who owned it until the middle of the 17th century. The Battle of Helsingborg in 1710 was the last time Denmark tried to capture it, but unsuccessfully. However, it was devastating for the city and took a few centuries to recover. Despite this destruction, there are a few old buildings here: St Mary’s Church, Kernan Tower (600-year old fortress), Town Hall and some other. Interestingly, Kullagatan -the main venue for shoppers in Helsingborg – was the first shopping street in Sweden for pedestrians.
Leisure in Helsingborg
The city dwellers like going out. Therefore, the city offers so many places where one can spend time culturally: the Helsingborg Arena, Dunkers Culture Center, Vikingsberg Art gallery, Helsingborg City Theater, Concert Hall, a unique open-air museum with gardens and farms, and many others. However, if you prefer solitude and want to escape the crowd, the city invites you to the nature reserves Kullaberg and Soderasen, which are just half an hour`s drive away. Another option is to take a ferry and enjoy a sea trip.
