The Gardens of Rhododendrons - Sofiero Castle

Sofiero Palace and Gardens is situated just north of the city of Helsingborg, about 5 km from Train Station .
The Castle built in 1865 was presented to crown prince Gustav Adolf , - became King Gustav IV Adolf in 1950 - for his wedding at the turn of the century, and became his summer residence, where he established a large collection of rhododendrons.
Soon after the prince planted his first rhododendron (from the Greek: rhodos, rose, and dendron, tree) in Sofiero.
His rhododendron interest grows primarily as collector and scientist. When he died in 1973 the castle became the property of the town of Helsingborg,and the gardens were spectacular with an impressive collection of more than 10,000 plants and more than 500 different varieties of colorful and rare rhododendron.
Novadays it renowned as one of Europe's largest collections of rhododendrons.
The palace itself is used as restaurant, cafe and at times as a gallery

The season for visitors starts in April and ends in September, however, if you are a lover of rhododendrons, like me, you should take into consideration, when planning your visit to Sofiero. that the blooming time is in May and June only.

The park is open from Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm.
Admission in the season 80 SEK, out of season free.
Trains run several times a day from Malmö, Gothenburg and Stockholm and deliver you to Knutpunkten, the central station in Helsingborg.
A bus connection serves the park leaving several times an hour from the center of Helsingborg.

The southern-most point of the country.

If you want to keep your feet dry, it is actually the place, where you can not walk any further to the south from; Smygehuk is the southern-most point of the country.
In the harbour there is a sign which marks both the exact position,and distances to several places, such as Paris - 1049 km, Moscow - 1489, Stockholm - 510 km, Berlin - 321 km, and Sweden's northern-most point, Trerikröset, where the borders of Sweden, Norway, and Finland meet - 1581km.
In the summer Smygehuk is very popular for its many cafés, restaurants, shops and small guest harbours.
The old lighthouse, to the west of the village, is hardly to find, since it is hidden by the tall trees surrounding the site.
The lighthouse is a museum nowadays, but it is still a great experience to climb the stairs to the top. The views from the 17 m tower are breathtaking, from here, you can see far out over both the flat countryside and the sea.

Directions: from Malmo by bus No.146, with change in Trelleborg to line190.
Duration about one hour, ticket 72 SEK

Nature in National Park Söderåsen
Interesting cities as Helsingborg & Höganäs
Or idyllic villages as Mölle & Arild.

Drive south down the coast...

Drive south down the coast from Malmö. There are several places worth visiting close by. Falsterbo with its long sandy beaches is Skåne´s prime summer vacation area just 30 minutes away. Don´t miss Trelleborg and Ystad, just a little further down along the coast. Smygehuk is the southernmost pasrt of Sweden and is located between Trelleborg and Ystad. The picture was taken close Beddingestrand, near Smygehuk.
