Sofiero Slott, Helsingborg

4.5
#Garden, #Castle, #Must See
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.

  • A little outside Helsingborg's city centre is this wonderful Castle. (go bus there) has one of Sweden's finest rosepark. OK restaurant, very barnvennellig and lots of herllige lawns. On the back of the Castle you have a fantastik views of the Öresund i.e. sea. Have been there many times in concert, bring a blanket, a lunchkurv, wine and beer are allowed but in plastic bottles, enjoy food and drink before the concert start.. Do not drive car here when it's live, take the bus or ride there. Summer concert has the world's stars that come, worth every penny to go there when

  • Beautiful garden, with a variety of different plant species, the most beautiful in spring or summer, in the winter romantically under the snow. Beautiful place for all ages  more »
  • We were here one night light show very nice. Was that a hike in different rooms with different information with both candles and electric light. There was also food and refreshments at different places, were very much people so they we tried never.
