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.

Quite probably one of the best gardens you are going to see

With Sofiero it is really quite simple: amazing gardens and amazing green space for getting lost in nature. I think it works great any day, be it sunny or cloudy, but a warm day... read more

Beautiful gardens, very nice exterior of the palace, slightly boring interior. A very lovely place for a picnic. Loads of visitors during the summer. Slightly too high ticket prices (you can buy a seasonal ticket at Dunkers and have free access to the gardens, the theatre and all exhibitions at Dunkers - much better value for your buck!)

Spent a sunny few hours strolling through beautiful gardens and lakes. Fabulous view across to Denmark where you can see Hamlet's castle. Enjoyed the interesting exhibition in the former Palace.

Solfiero castle and garden (Solfiero Slott and Slottsträdgård) on Solfierovägen, 131, about 5 km to the north of Helsingborg, can easily be reached by bus 8 (direction Domsten) which stops at the entrance. It took about a quarter of an hour. Watch out because there is no stop called « Solfiero Slott » and the bus driver, who knew we... More

Went here last week- it was far from city, I had to spend total 44SKK on bus ticket, but totally worth it. Entry fee for Sofiero is 100SKK, but I had bought a 2 day 120SKK pass which gives entry to 4 attractions in Helisborg. Sofiero takes full 2 hours to explore. Castle and a big flower garden are two...

Went to Sofiero with our dogs for a long walk around the gardens. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It wasn't particularly crowded either. We had a coffee and pastry at the cafe which were on the expensive side but tasty. Loved our visit so much we would certainly return.!

Visited this summer palace that the SWEDISH Royal Family used to use, it is a lovely18th century house with srunning views over the sea to Denmark, also lovely woodland walks, and stunning flower gardens, a place to bring all the family, not to be missed on a visit to Helsinborg.

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 :).
