It´s a nice setting close to the sea overlooking the denish coast. The castle is rather small, has a nice gallery, a coffe shop and restaurant. We went for a walk in the park, it´s known for hundreds of rododendron in various colours. Since the...More

Hi! Helsingborg is my hometown (half way to Sofiero - Drottninggatan) and I now live in Malmo! I'd say it would take roughly 30 - 40 minutes to walk...the bus will go there every 30 minutes...make sure the bus goes along the... More
