Sofiero Palace was, until the 1970s, a summer residence for Swedish royalty. The magnificent heritage of thousands of rhododendrons, beds, borders and kitchen gardens is carefully tended by a team of dedicated experts. In 2010, Sofiero was voted Europe’s Best Park.Sofiero is situated just north of the town of Helsingborg in southern Sweden. Interesting exhibitions in the palace and a variety of exciting events and activities in the beautiful park and gardens are some of the things you can look forward to when planning your visit. The season, during which the palace, shops, restaurant and café are open for visitors, starts March 31 and ends in September. However, you are welcome to visit Sofiero for a guided tour, a walk in the park and a chance to enjoy the view over the strait of Öresund to Denmark at any time of the year.

Great with kids

It's a great place to bring the kids for an afternoon. Look out for some dates where it's free to enter, usually when they open the kids area and around midsummer.

We payed around 12 euro to enter,but sadly nothing we have seen justified the price : the restaurant in the castle was booked for a convention so we were not allowed to enter, the garden only had some flowers : tulips and daffodils ,in the orangerie were some pots with flowers.That was all.

Amazing garden with lots and lots of flowers. There is also a lot of things for children to do, such as play in the playground where there are small houses with clothes to dress up in. My cousin's kids loved it! In the summer time there are some concerts happening there and I and my friend went to one. It... More

The gardens are beautiful, especially when the rhododendrons are blooming. There is a nice path down to the water and a good restaurant in the slott (palace). Most recently we were there for the Christmas buffet (julbord), which was excellent.

I walked from downtown Helsingborg, along the sidewalks and it took me about 1 hour to get here (5km distance). It was an easy walk and very easy to find. The grounds are open in the off-season, and are free admission, but other than the evergreen rhododendron species, everything was dormant for the winter(I knew this going in of course).... More

Cute castle surrounded by a beautiful park made for strolling on your own, twosome, with the family or friends. Bring a pic nic on a sunny spring or summer day; have a feeka (fika) or maybe lunch in the castle restaurant and enjoy its peaceful atmosphere. There are many activities going on around the year and according to season like... More

Wonderful garden filled with many beautiful flower arrangements, small paths to explore but that's basically it, we weren't allowed to enter the castle it self, so to pay just to wonder in someone's garden was a bit disappointing.

Castle surrounded by a HUUUUGE royal garden! Have only been there during the summers and it's beautiful to watch the nature. Also the castle is nice with historical photos and costumes to be seen!

Really worth visiting if you are in the area. The gardens are lovelly, especially in the spring with all the tulips and the rhododendrons. But it is smashing in the fall too. In the winter you will not meet a lot of visitors but still a beautiful place to visit.
