A unique meeting place
The Towns of Elsinore and Helsingborg are separated by a 4000 metre narrow strait - only 20 minutes by ferry seperate these historic towns, with the fortifications of Kronborg on the Elsinore side and Kärnan on the Helsingborg side. These two fortifications were able to control the traffic through The Sound (Øresund) from 1429 to 1857.
Today,travellers between Denmark and Sweden can enjoy duty free shopping on the ferries between the two countries. And since 1972, there has been a unique form of cooperation within Rotary, on The Sound between these historic towns.
