Helsingør has for centuries been the harbour where passing ships had to pay the Sound Dues, for a long time the major income for the danish crown. Today there is an important and much frequented ferry line to Helsingborg in Sweden. However the city is even more famous for Kronborg castle, an UNESCO world heritage site and the place where Shakespeare’s play Hamlet was set. The old harbour has been turned into the Kulturhavn Kronborg (Culture Harbour Kronborg).
The Stengade is the major shopping street of Helsingør, running soutwest to northeast parallel to the sea in the south. Here on the east end of the street, there are some administrative buildings and fewer shops, which are concentrated towards the west end of the street.
