Overview
More
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.

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

An absolutely stunning park with diverse and colourful flora. Could be great for meditation, relaxing and reading as it is very calm and quiet at most times.

Its very nice, with some beautiful surroundings. You have to have some comfy shoes as it is most like a walk in woods/ park. Totally worth it in a nice sunny day.

Use your internet! It's not far at all by car from Helsingborg city (Kärnan) Google: 13 min (5,1 km) via Drottninggatan & Sofierovägen
