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.

We went here during a rainy summer day and regardless of the awful Swedish weather, we still truly enjoyed this place. There's wonderful gardens to visit with gorgeous flowers as well as a beautiful view to the sea. The castle itself is full of history. It was a great experience :).

We try to visit this beautifully situated and wonderfull garden next to Øresund with a view to Denmark and Kronborg Castle every year late may or early june to watch the rhododendrons. The season differs a bit from year to year, if you visit early you can watch the white, yellow and red ones, and later the deep blue ones.... More

A very nice Place to visit. Just walk around in the park and feel like a Swedish king and Queen when they needed a Place to hide away in the summer. In the building there is both a restaurant and a café and outside in the park you will find a lot of beaful flowers and other green things. Many... More

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
