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. « less

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.

This is the summer resident of the former Swedish King. The Castle is now used as a restaurant and art gallery. The Castle is surrounded by a very large and very beautiful garden where you can stroll around for hours and enjoy all the different kinds of flowers.

We rode up in bikes from town (stopping at the harbor, beaches, parks. There was a nice natural grass miniature golf course next to the bath house.) The grounds were very nicely maintained. Each themed garden took us to a different place. My wife liked this better than Butchart Gardens in Victoria. We walked the entire park, had picnic lunch,... More

Gardens are really lovely and we enjoyed the exhibition on Swedish Royalty. Thank you to the lady for explaining it all to us.

My wife and I took a cruise for our honeymoon and our final port of call brought us to Helsingborg, Sweden! The final stop on our shore excursion brought us to Sofiero and we loved it! The ticket desk provided an English map when we entered which made it very easy to navigate the vast property. The gardens were beautiful... More

This is not a site that you can rush in and out of. Take a moment to explore the grounds, there are gorgeous spots all around. Stay for lunch because the food is great.

We visited Sofiero while on a road trip from Göteborg to Malmö (its about 3/4 of the way). Admission is 100 SEK, parking is free. Signs on the E20 make it easy to find. I was kind of expecting something much more grand than this place really is. From the entry gate it is an impressive home and the gardens... More

Visiting Sofiero Castle and Gardens is a must on a beautiful sunny day. The castle may not resemble the grand royal palaces, but it shows a piece of the Swedish royal family’s private lives. The castle is worth a visit, but the gardens are just amazing and I guess when the gardens are blooming, the place is adorable. Also don’t... More

Sofiero Castle, the big parc and garden was a great experience! In particular the phantastic garden with literally thousands of flowers arranged in ingenious ways was unbelievably beautiful. Don't miss it!
