Helsingör / Denmark
The alarm went off early in the morning and after a good breakfast and a little walk with the dog we headed forward to our first destination.

I never stayed in south-western Sweden before. I crossed it on my way to Norway several times but I never stopped by. Because we only had 2 weeks for our trip we decided to stay along the western shore. There are lots of nice things to see and to do.

Crossing Denmark was fastly done ;) Within 1 1/2 hours we arrived Helsingör were we took the ferry to Helsingborg which is only a 25 minutes cruise. Not far from the ferry terminal you see the castle of Helsingör. Some day I'll go there for a visit, too ;) We had some strong winds during the cruise over the Öresund and it rained a bit.

All in all the summer of 2007 was a bad one. Lots of rain and floods all over Europe.

Helsingborg is the closest point to Denmark and one of the oldest cities of Sweden. It's a beautiful city and we did some sightseeing before we headed further to find a campground.

Historic Helsingborg, with its many old builings, is a scenic coastal city. The buildings are a blend of old-style stone-built churches and a medieval fortress (Kärnan) in the city centre, which has stood guard in Helsingborg for over 600 years, and more modern commercial buildings. The streets vary from wide avenues to small alley-ways. Kullagatan, the main pedestrian shopping street in the city, was the first pedestrian shopping street in Sweden. You can climb up the tower of Kärnan and you have a great overview over the city from up there.

We picked up some chinese food for lunch and had that in the nearby public park before we headed north to Kullaberg which is a nature preserve and a beautiful place for a walk.

Then we looked for a campground which wasn't easy. This is quite unusual for Scandinavia. Generally they have lots of campgrounds along the touristic routes. But we were unlucky. Either the campground was full or it was incredibly expensive. So we decided to stay on the parking place of a mall close to Laholm.
