Historic Building in Helsingør

About 5km west of Helsingør, this picturesque old smithy was founded by Christian IV in 1765 to hammer out cannons for his battleships, and has also served as a copper and textile mill. Admire the thatched roof and waterwheels, and refresh yourself with coffee and cake at the cafe, where you can request the key.

For a guided tour, make contact in advance (40kr per adult, minimum fee 400kr). Hammermøllen is just 200m southwest of Hellebæk train station. Or, if you don’t have a pressing itinerary, the site makes a pleasant destination for a cycle ride.
