The Marienlyst hotel in Helsingør

I can see Hotel Casino Marienlyst on the Danish side of Öresund from my living room every day (except on very foggy days). A couple of days ago I took the ferry to Helsingør in order to have a closer look:

Hamlet "guards" the entrance to hotel Marienlyst.
Hotel Marienlyst is beautifully located on the waterfront.

This wooden path is convenient when guests want to swim in the clean Øresund water.

Immediately to the north of the hotel there are many beautiful private villas.
