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.

The gardens were smaller than I expected but were beautifully planted with flowers, trees and shrubs. The passion flowers in the orangery (which was hard to find) weren't quite in flower when I went in early June. One of the greenhouses contained a vast vine, the other was empty. The peace was spoiled by someone mowing. It was nice that... More

What luck for us! Our visit to Sofiero Slott was early in June, and the thousands of rhododendrons and azaleas were in full bloom, a riot of color. The grounds of the Slott are extensive and varied in terrain, and make for a very pleasant hour or so of strolling. Visiting the Slott itself was also fascinating. There was an... More

Summer Castle of the Swedish Royal Family, Sofiero Slott has a beautiful and Big Garden. I spend an entire afternoon there. You can even see the Oresund Sea and Elsinore Coast from the Castle, including the Kromborg Castle. It is very easy to go by bus from the central station of Helsinborg.

The summer palace is a nice place to visit when the weather is warm and sunny. We were about to visit on a cold and rainy day and then changed our minds. I'm glad that we did as we went the following day when it was much warmer and sunny. The gardens are very nicely maintained and a treat to... More

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
