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.

  • The Castle impresses both by its size, but it's still very beautiful. What struck me most was the castle garden. And the view to the sea is wonderful. Worth the trip

  • It's always nice to visit Sofiero Castle. Now it was the garden party and focus on the Mkt also to shop. but food for all types of budgets. Beware if you buy a ticket online, accidentally throw mine and got big problems to get a new despite payment with VISA card. Not the most knowledgeable helpful or pleasant employees I have met.
