The copperplate-engraved view by Gabriel Bodenher is from the perspective of a viewer looking south into the north entrance of the Oresund. At the right are Helsingor, Kronborg Castle (Cronenburg), and Copenhagen. At left on the east side of the sound lie Helsingborg (Ellingburg), Landskrona (Lands Croon) and Malmo. Warships bearing flags of several nations are underway heading south in the direction of Copenhagen.
