With its fascinating history and wonderful location by the strait of Öresund, Sofiero Palace and Gardens is a must for a visit. Royal gardening heritage mixes happily with innovative garden design and eco-friendly solutions. Sofiero has something for everyone. In addition to the beautiful park and gardens, there are interesting exhibitions, a well-stocked gift shop, the Sofiero Flower & Garden Shop and an acclaimed restaurant. Sofia’s bridge is this year’s newcomer, boldly spanning the north gully. From here, visitors can admire parts of Europe’s largest collection of rhododendrons, which bloom in all their glory in early summer. But the park and gardens are worth visiting at any time of the year. There’s always something new to discover at Sofiero!

Every year, thousands of visitors come to Sofiero to enjoy the flowering beauty, the royal tradition and the wonderful view towards the Sound. But how did it all start? In 1864, Prince Oscar and his wife Sophie purchased the Skabelycke estate, just north of Helsingborg, so they could build their summer palace, ‘Sophie-Ro.’ The palace existed already but had a different appearance than today; among other things it had only one floor. Ten years later, when Oscar became king the palace underwent significant renovations to appear as it does today. THE HISTORY
