The cultural pearl Elsinore in royal and historic North Zealand

The 800-year-old market town exudes a unique maritime cultural history that you will not come across anywhere else. If you let go, you have the opportunity to step into a piece of Danish history, strolling through the old cobbled streets and feeling the breath of history from the market town of the past.

Despite Elsinore's historical significance, it's not something you hang on to. In Elsinore, you'll experience local pride, but it's as much set in the present and future as it is in the past.

There is so much to experience and dive into: the coast and natural life are something exceptional in these parts, and it is not difficult to get carried away by the many alluring attractions, events and moods.
