Helsingborg is a safe city. However, as with most large cities, crime does happen. Certain precautions can be taken to ensure you make the most of this Scandinavian city.
Travel insurance to cover theft and medical expenses is recommended. Avoid carrying large sums of cash, important documents, and valuables, as pick-pocketing does happen. Only make use of marked taxis and be wary when paying with your credit card – drivers have been known to swap cards. Sweden has been the target of terrorist attacks in recent years – remain cautious in large crowds and avoid political rallies and demonstrations.
Proof of yellow fever vaccination is required if you are travelling from a yellow fever endemic area. Immunisation against Hepatitis A & B, and rabies are recommended. Other routine vaccinations include MMR, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella and polio.
