Gratischat dk Helsingør

The castle was expanded in the 1580s and renamed Kronborg.

All ships had to stop in Helsingør to get their cargo taxed and pay a toll to the Danish Crown, but it also generated a significant trade for the town.

The oldest known fortified building of Helsingør is Flynderborg, an early medieval fortress situated on a hill just south of the medieval city.

Around 1200, the first church, Saint Olaf's Church, was built.

In 1672 Helsingør had grown into the third biggest town in Denmark.
