Sofiero Palace


Sofiero Palace lies in a flowering oasis just 5 km north of the city of Helsingborg.

Sofiero Palace was built in 1864 as a summer palace and commissioned by prince Oscar of Sweden.

The palace is named after his wife Sofia and the original name of the palace is “Sofia Ro” which translates roughly as “Sofia at rest”. ‘Gorgeous’ is a very apt description of Sofiero. The castle lies in a flowering oasis of 10,000 plants, and 300 different varieties of rhododendron and various gardens; including an English garden and a Victorian garden. On the first floor of the palace is the fabulous Sofiero Slottsrestaurang restaurant that serves the delicacies of the region and from it you get views of Denmark and the Öresund Bridge. In 1905 king Oscar II gave his beloved Sofiero as a wedding present to royal couple Gustaf Adolf and Margareta – nice wedding present.
