Built in 1897, the turreted, neo-Gothic Town Hall (Rådhuset), Drottninggatan 1 (tel. 042/10-50-00), has beautiful stained-glass windows depicting scenes from the town's history. The artist, Gustav Cederström, took great pride in the epic history of his hometown and painted these scenes. But, frankly, the reason to stop here at any of five times a day (9am, noon, 3pm, 6pm, and 9pm) is to listen to the songs ringing from the 66m (217-ft.) bell tower. Two memorial stones outside were presented by the Danes and the Norwegians to the Swedes for their assistance during World War II. There is also a sculpture relief representing the arrival of Danish refugees.

In the main town square, the Stortorget is a monument commemorating Swedish general Magnus Stenbock's victory over Denmark at the Battle of Helsingborg in 1710. Today the statue is virtually ignored, as ferry-bound travelers pass it by, but it marked a turning point in Danish/Swedish history. (In 1709, the Danes invaded Skåne once again and wanted to take it back, but they were finally defeated the following year in a battle just outside Helsingborg.)
