GARDENS

We are proud that we have one of Europe’s most best parks. Sofiero Palace and gardens won this distinction in 2012. Sofiero’s park is still as magnificent today. However, Helsingborg has much else to offer. Everything from orangeries to allotments and formal gardens. Tiny garden gems and palatial parks. Which one will capture your imagination?
 
SOFIERO PALACE
Sofiero PALACE and gardens, is an ever-popular destination. It is perhaps best-known for its matchless spring show of rhododendrons – 5,000 bushes in full bloom! In 2016, Sofiero marked its 150 years with great celebrations. Among others, a jubilee garden was planted and this will become a permanent feature of the park. Stroll along the paths, visit the melon house and drop into the orangery. Every autumn, more than 43,000 bulbs are planted that bloom the following spring. READ MORE

FREDRIKSDAL MUSEUM
Fredriksdal museum and gardens are like a Skåne in miniature! This is Sweden’s second largest open-air museum. The property was bought by Oscar Trapp in 1898 and whenOscar died in 1916, his wife Gisela donated it to the city of Helsingborg. Besides the park, rose garden and kitchen garden, there are several old houses and other buildings to interest you. Most of these have been bought from other locations in Skåne and painstakingly moved here. You can walk through an entire street district from historic Helsingborg. During the Christmas and Easter
periods, you can see how these festivals were celebrated in the past. READ MORE
 

 

NORRVIKEN´S GARDENS
Norrviken´s garden complex, just outside Båstad, is one of Sweden’s most beautiful. The amazing views across Laholmsbukten bay can be enjoyed from seven different styles of garden, all radiating out from Villa Abelin. The house takes its name from founder and first owner, Rudolf Abelin, who opened Norrviken in 1920. Besides Italian Baroque, Renaissance, monastery, oriental and Japanese gardens, there is also a large orchard. Originally, this had 5,000 fruit trees with over 200 varieties of apples and pears. Today, the range is a little more selective and the focus has shifted to relaxation and enjoyment of the natural beauty and the events held here. Norrviken welcomes you and wonders which will be your favorite garden setting! READ MORE

KRAPPERUP 
Krapperup manor garden has its roots in the formal Baroque creations of the 17th century. Much has happened since then. The park has changed with the times and is now a landscaped masterpiece. Nonetheless, there is still the intimate floral splendor of the rose garden and perennial borders as well as the beautiful manor and moat setting. READ MORE
 
ROTHOFFS MUSEIKOLONI
Rothoffs Museikoloni in Landskrona is Sweden’s only allotment museum. Its little green cabin was built by the Rothoff family in 1903. The furnishings remain intact and the cabin now hosts a small exhibition on the history of the allotments. Perennials and roses at the front, vegetable and herb gardens at the back. On Landskrona’s former ramparts, the Citadel is the country’s oldest preserved allotment area. Picturesque cabins and marvelous shows of plants are a feature of all 122 plots. READ MORE
