We’ve organised a treat for you in February – an exclusive tour of one of the oldest hotels in Helsingborg, full of history and interesting stories! Our guide will be Sales Manager Louise Johansson, who loves to meet people and tell them about this famous establishment.

The tour will last around 45 minutes and then Louise will update us on the exciting new facilities at the Clarion Hotel & Congress Sea U being built on the waterfront next to The Tivoli. This will also be a good opportunity to find out which staff positions they will be recruiting for this year 😉

We’ll finish with a mingle in the bar area, where you can purchase a drink from Helsingborg’s biggest gin bar or order food of your choice.
