The town's original spelling was Hör. The present, unusual spelling with double "ö" was implemented by the Swedish postal service at the beginning of the 20th century. At that time, it was a common practice in Sweden to write Här (for here) on the address column of local letters. In order to avoid confusion between letters to be delivered locally and those intended for Hör, the postal service has therefore changed the town's name to Höör.
Höör railway station is located on the northern side of the town and a five-minute walk into the central square. It is on the line between Kristianstad and Malmö, where there are frequent commuter trains running beyond Sweden to Copenhagen in Denmark.
