Already during the 1100s, a predecessor church was built where St. Mary’s stands today. At that time, most of Helsingborg lay up the steep hill along the coast around Helsingborg. A new church was built when the old building became too small to accommodate the growing city. The sandstones of the old church building were reused for the foundation of the new structure. It’s also possible to see older gravestones that were incorporated in the new foundation. The church building in its current form was finished around 1450.
The history of St. Mary's Church
Since the 1300s, St. Mary’s red brick walls have reached for the sky, and mirrored the lives of those who call Helsingborg “home.”
