Sofiero Slott, Helsingborg

(360+ reviews on the web)
Garden
Peek into the intimate life of Swedish royalty at Sofiero Slott, one of the family's country mansions. Originally built in 1865, the home was expanded to its current size in 1876 when King Oscar II came into power. In 1905 the castle was given as a wedding gift to the king's grandson, future King Gustaf VI Adolf, who loved the castle so much he donated it to the general public upon his death. Take a guided tour or use an audio guide to explore the upstairs of the castle with rooms decorated in period furnishings, or stop by the lower level, which now houses a cafe. The castle is best-known for its stunning rhododendron gardens featuring 500 different species. Take a picnic on the sprawling lawns and soak in the greenery.

  • Soferio is my favourite place in Helsingborg and is beautiful in spring and summer, go for the gardens and the view of Denmark across the Sound. The flowers and gardens are breathtaking. Take a picnic...  more »
  • A very good opportunity to see what it was like for the Royals for only few decades back in time. The Park is beautiful in any season.

  • Sofiero castle on the outskirts of Helsingborg is worth a visit. A sunny day in the summer, I think you should feel the stunning gardens with their varied nature. I was there this past summer in the company of her daughter from Stockholm. She was completely overcome in all the flowers and trees and shrubs.
