Helsingor (Denmark) cruise port

Town's name is derived from the word "hals" which means "neck" ("narrow strait"), referring to the narrowest point of Oresund. Elsinore is the main shopping destination in North Sealand (North Zealand island), with more than 1 million visitors per year.

Wiibroe Brewery (established 1840) was Denmark's second brewery producing bottled beer (the Wiibroe Flag label) - after Carlsberg. The last Wiibroe Flag was brewed in 1998. Carlsberg continues to brew the beer under the Wiibroe Årgangso label.

The city's oldest fortified building (Flynderborg) is an early medieval fortress on a hill south of the old city. The oldest church (Saint Olaf's Church) was built in the 13th-century. Another popular tourist attraction is the 1915-founded Maritime Museum of Denmark, with collections themed on Denmark's shipping trade dating back from the 15th century.

Helsingor Vaerft (Elsinore Shipyard) was founded in 1882 and used to cover the whole area between Helsingor and Kronborg Castle. At its peak (1957), the shipbuilding facility had ~3600 employees. Due to heavy financial losses, the shipyard was closed in 1983.

In November 2016, the port commissioned a floating dock (located next to the quay) used for cruise ship tender boats docking. In 2017, the cruise port handled a total of 7 ship calls.
