  • This is the botanical garden where Carl Linnaeus made his study of Botany and zoology in mid-1700 and was its Director from 1728 to 1731. In this place he developed a new classification of the plant and animal world, defined binary nomenclature. Later as Professor at Uppsala University will publish its key works the SYSTEMA NATURAE (1735) and SPECIES PLANTARUM (1753). Today we are preserved between 3000-4000 species of plants and annexed there is the House in which he lived the scientist with his wife and children. Very interesting to visit the latter, as it describes the way of life of a college professor in mid 1700.

  • I have been there with colleagues for lunch The salad was amazing, very fresh and tasty One of the best I had in Sweden  more »
  • We ran through the garden. Definitely a well maintained facility with many different plants from all over the world. Walking around, it's quite alright, but more than half an hour I would now not there to spend. For plant lovers but worth a visit!

Where to stay in Uppsala

University town Uppsala represents a relatively affordable Swedish destination. A number of hostels surround the city center, and proximity to the city center is key--the closer the better for exploring on foot all that the city has to offer. Many mid-range hotels ensure a comfortable stay at a reasonable cost, oftern with breakfast included. If luxury is more your style, look for the big chain hotels.
