Sweden: Sightseeing in Helsingborg

We went to Helsingborg this afternoon - for sightseeing. We've been to this city in the past but we've only done some shopping and dining.

What's good to see in Helsingborg? We were in Rådhuset (City Hall) dating back to 1897. It also houses the tourist information office.

We also went to Kärnan, the symbol of the city, with spiral staircase leading up to the top, where we got a view of the city and even Denmark.

I've read that there are more than 500 shops and 160 restaurants and cafes in the streets of Helsingborg. The main shopping street runs south from Kullagatan which happens to be Scandinavia's first pedestrian street.

We had lunch at Haket, a kebab and pizza restaurant. We've been there before when they had a nice small restaurant. Now they've expanded it and made it even more attractive. We like the food too and this is why we keep on going back.

We also went to one of Scandinavia's biggest shopping centre, Väla, located just outside Helsingborg.
