The oldest known fortified building of Helsingør is Flynderborg, an early medieval fortress situated on a hill just south of the medieval city.
Around 1200, the first church, Saint Olaf's Church, was built.
It officially opened on , intended to appeal to tourists with an interest in culture.
The main attraction of Kulturhavn Kronborg is Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
All ships had to stop in Helsingør to get their cargo taxed and pay a toll to the Danish Crown, but it also generated a significant trade for the town.
In 1672 Helsingør had grown into the third biggest town in Denmark.
A number of convents once surrounded the church, but now all that remains is the church building, today the cathedral of the Diocese of Helsingør.
The oldest parts of the cathedral of Helsingør date back to the 13th century and tell us that the fishermen's village, as Helsingør was then, had grown to a town of importance.
The people were mentioned as Helsinger (which may mean "the people of the strait") for the first time in King Valdemar the Victorious's Liber Census Daniæ from 1231 (not to be confused with the Helsings of Hälsingland in Sweden).
Placenames show that the Helsinger may have had their main fort at Helsingborg and a fortified landing place at Helsingør, to control the ferry route across the strait.
Utzon designed The Kingo Houses (1956–60) and The Hammershøj Care Centre (1962) in the city.
