Owner description: 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.

“Worth a visit!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We have been to Sofiero Slott and Garden, and found it very beautiful and well maintained place. We reached there using ferry from Helsingor to Helsingborg, and our ferry ticket included the ride to and fro till soffiero garden via bus. There is a nominal entrance fee, and there is a café running inside, serving nice coffee and sandwiches. After entering into the garden, one can find the beautiful thinking of the queen (had heard that there were more than 5000 saplings planted by the Queen). It is an ideal place for picnic and paradise for nature lovers. The beautiful residence of queen, that is now a museum was well maintained and having various social activities running for social causes. There was one such activity during my visit is an painting exhibition from a Japanese Boy (Don't remember his name though), who was a special children and we loved the paintings very much.

The short trails in between the jungle with narrow water streams, kids area with small rides, scenic beauty of sea, totem poll, and of course the rhododendron flower plants were the must watch there. There were many other flower plantation going on (one such was orange and yellow tulip sowing). There is also a green maze, where you can not exit until you reach till the center.

The best time to visit starts from Mid April when rhododendrons and tulips are blooming and there is greenery everywhere.

“Fantastic day out for all the family”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

If you are looking for a full day out for all ages this is the place. We visited with my daughter and her children. My grandson loved the two mazes and we had to drag him away from the childrens' area - there was so muc for him to do: playground, play house, shop, garden, dressing up. The gardens are beuatiful. We didn't have time to go into the house. the restaurant provided a healthy and excellent lunch with something to suit everyone in our party.

“fantastic guide for a Swedish gem”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Sofiero slott and garden are exceptionally charming and the whole scenario absolutely worth a visit. The competence and friendliness of the guide Daniela added considerable value and made the whole experience even more interesting (thank you!).
The strong point of the visit is the garden, also offering extraordinary views of the öresund.

Highly recommended (notice the entrance is about 80-85 SEK for adults).

Lovely place for lunch and viewing the gardens in summer. The self paced tour of the castle shares it's history via photos and writings of the royal family.
