Sofiero Slott, Helsingborg
(4.6/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One of the better buffet I've been to with the classic but also some surprises such as Apple mulled wine. Do not miss to order lutfisken.

  • Great rhododendron-park with lots of different kinds (Gustav WE gathered on these). In the autumn a lot of dahlias and otherwise fine plantings. There are a few exhibitions in the area and are you experiencing during checkout, you can eat at the castle restaurant, different themes are available depending on the time, goose dinner etc. A sight that really CAN BE RECOMMENDED.

  • Please visit Sofiero when Rhododendron flaunts and is at its most beautiful. Lovely setting with beautiful gardens (the gardens).
