Day 3

Tour to Sweden and/or the highlights of Helsingør. 31- 55-78 km/19-34-48 US Miles + Ferry.
Highly recommended is the 2 km ride from Snekkersten to Helsingør and the impressive Kronborg Castle (renowned from Shakespeare`s play Hamlet) and the historical city centre. Also the Danish Mari- time Museum listed on the New York Times’ list: ”52 places to go in 2014” is a “must” because of its fanta- stic architecture and exciting exhibition.

If those attractions take your time don’t worry. You can choose between 3 stages in Sweden, if you are in lack of time. On the longest stage you cycle to the rocky peninsula “Kullen”, but you can also choose shorter stages. The ferry to Sweden runs every 15 minutes  for a roundtrip.(not included)
