Sofiero Palace was, until the 1970s, a summer residence for Swedish royalty. The magnificent heritage of thousands of rhododendrons, beds, borders and kitchen gardens is carefully tended by a team of dedicated experts. In 2010, Sofiero was voted Europe’s Best Park.Sofiero is situated just north of the town of Helsingborg in southern Sweden. Interesting exhibitions in the palace and a variety of exciting events and activities in the beautiful park and gardens are some of the things you can look forward to when planning your visit. The season, during which the palace, shops, restaurant and café are open for visitors, starts March 31 and ends in September. However, you are welcome to visit Sofiero for a guided tour, a walk in the park and a chance to enjoy the view over the strait of Öresund to Denmark at any time of the year.

The castle is a waste of time but the gardens might be good during summer. We went in spring and there was not much to see. The view of the sea on a sunny day is beautiful though.

An exceptional park with a mix of wild and planned gardening. Beautiful views and a large rododendron plantation, dating back to the old king of Seden.

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 and wander around or have a bite at the Cafe.
