Sofiero Slott, Helsingborg

(4.6/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • This a park well worth visiting for several times but perhaps during the time when the rhododendrons are in bloom. Take the time to walk the winding paths down to the sea-magic! There are a lot of beautiful plantings a perfectly ok got/restaurant as well as a smaller garden trade. There are some events/exhibitions in the area so please check the website before then. We were lucky enough to come when there was an exhibition of one motorklubb with classic cars on site!
