In 1905, Oscar II's grandchild Prince Gustaf Adolf, future King Gustaf VI Adolf, and his wife, crown Princess Margaret of Connaught received the palace as a wedding gift. They renovated the palace and started the large Rhododendron garden for which the palace is known today. It was supposedly the King's favorite place and upon his death, which occurred in Helsingborg, he gift Sofiero to the city of Helsingborg, so that the general public could enjoy it as much as he had. The main attraction today is the very large gardens with a wide range of local (and other) plant life, stretching to the shore of Oresund.
