During the Middle Ages, Helsingborg was an important Danish town, as a military base and administrative center for northern Skåne. In later years, the town suffered and fell into decline due to the constant wars between Denmark and Sweden. And it wasn't until their industrial revolution at the beginning of the 19th century that Helsingborg began to turn around, and a new era based on technology, innovation and enterprise began. The harbor was expanded, industries were established and railways constructed, and the town's population increased dramatically. Today it's a bustling port and northern hub in the dynamic Öresund region.
The Keep Tower is Helsingborg's most famous landmark and it has guarded the city for more than 600 years.
Helsingborg's neo-Gothic style town hall is a majestic building located next to Stortorget, the city's main square.
