Sofiero 150 years
Once upon a time there was a prince and a princess ... As many stories begin, the story about Sofiero also begins with a prince and a princess. In 1866, Crown Prince Oscar and his wife Sophia of Nassau finally could spend their first summer at the summer palace of their dreams – overlooking the wooded gorges, the strait and Denmark. This year the story about Sofiero turns 150 years and will be celebrated all through 2016 with a big jubilee!
Throughout 2016 there will be celebrations of the 150th jubilee making every event in the palace and park extra special. The Anniversary Exhibition at the palace takes the visitor on a unique journey through several generations of royal artistry in the Bernadotte dynasty - from Danish Queen Margrethe's textile art to the Swedish Prince Carl-Philip's industry design.
Welcome to Sofiero
The inauguration of Sofiero's 150th jubilee will take place on Sweden's National Day June 6th in the presence of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. During the festive celebrations a brand new Jubilee Garden, as well as the Jubilee Exhibition at the palace will be inaugurated.
