Helsingborg, Sweden, invests in pier surroundings

SeaDream I in Helsingborg (c) Port of Helsingborg - Helsingborg, Sweden, invests in pier surroundings (December 2021)The city of Helsingborg has invested heavily in the areas that surround the pier which is located in the heart of the city. A brand new urban area called SeaU was completed in the second quarter of 2021.

As part of the development a hotel owned by Petter Stordalen has been opened. The rooftop bar offers views out to sea and across the city. Local restaurants, bars and cafes provide the background to a great mix of local people and visitors. There is also a smaller public park next to the pier.

The pier itself is 180m long with a draught of 6.5m and a recommended length overall of 150 m.

Mark Wieden, cruise manager Port of Helsingborg, says: “Due to its size, we are targeting smaller cruiseships and yachts in the premium segment, that can berth with easy access to the middle of the city centre.

“Since the city of Helsingborg is a very compact city, the location of the pier offers walking distance to all the activities the inner city has to offer and with short transit times for a diverse range of shore excursions in the surrounding areas in the south of Sweden.”

In August 2021 SeaDream Yacht Club’s SeaDream 1 was the first to call at the pier since the development was completed. Currently three are two calls planned for next year, one of which will be docking at the city pier.
