Danhostel Helsingør is a super hostel which offers accommodation close to cultural offerings and architecture. We are on the outskirts of the experience-packed town of Elsinore. At Danhostel Helsingør, also known as Villa Moltke, there are many delights right at the water's edge. Stay in our magnificent hostel with its own private beach - directly out to the Øresund (Sound). In this wonderful location, you can walk barefoot in the sand and enjoy the stunning views of Kronborg’s towers.
This unusual Danhostel sets the stage for a good night’s sleep and fresh morning swim - both in summer and winter. Afterwards, enjoy a large breakfast buffet with freshly baked bread, yoghurt, muesli, fresh fruits, cold cuts, cheese, coffee, tea and juice. Sit in the large, stately dining room, which welcomes the morning sun as it peeks through the paned windows. Children can play in the backyard while adults bask in the sun, enjoy the ocean roar, or relax with an intriguing book on the red garden chairs. Danhostel Helsingør offers accommodation in 42 rooms and 8 green cabins on the other side of the courtyard. In addition, there are TV rooms, a playground, a lounge with a pool, an activity room for children, free Wi-Fi, and a modern guest kitchen.
In just 10 minutes, you can walk along the beach to Kronborg Castle, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Holger Danske, one of Denmark’s kings, waits patiently for you in one of the secret tunnels. The castle, which towers over the Øresund region, previously served as one of the main sources of income in the region and stands today as a clear symbol of the King's power. Spend time experiencing Hamlet's castle inside and out regardless of the weather and view the Renaissance castle's fortifications. Take a brisk walk up and down the ramparts with many opportunities to look out of the old arrow slits.
While in Elsinore, visit the world- famous Maritime Museum, designed by the Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels, who designed many well-known buildings in Copenhagen. The Maritime Museum is unique. It is underground in an old dry dock between Kronborg and Culture Yard. This modern underground museum provides a wide range of exhibits and experiences for families with children, students and tourists.
Visit Elsinore, the commercial town with cobbled streets and well-stocked shops. If you enjoy medieval culture, tour The Church of Saint Mary (Sct. Mariæ Kirke). It is a former monastery with a beautiful garden, which creates an idyllic setting - a green oasis from former days. Learn more about Elsinore's history when you drop by the town’s new cultural centre, Kulturværftet, with auditoriums for theatre, concerts, exhibitions and meetings. Remember to stop by the statue of HAN, nicknamed ‘The Little Merman’, the famous brother of the Little Mermaid. He is well-known from Japan to the United States. Ride around North Zealand, also called “Copenhagen's green front yard”. Rent a bicycle at the hostel and venture into the unknown.
One night at Danhostel Helsingør is not enough when you visit this maritime town on the tip of North Zealand. Visitors come repeatedly to attend weddings and courses, to spend time with family and friends, or as a single traveler, family, couple or group.
