  • The garden is very nice and there are many different plant species on display. I can recommend to accompany a tour of his house to see their private halls, his egenbestälda porcelain from China and many funny stories around him and his life.

  • Great places to visit when the weather is nice. In order to enter in Linnaeus ' home, one must join a tour with a guide. The tour was very good, and is recommended. There is also a small museum, Museum shop and temporary exhibitions which are constantly open. There are places to sit if you have your own picnic, but the Triller's small branch with hearty affordable food and refreshments on site. The entire Linnaeus ' Hammarby is a peaceful place with historic atmosphere. If you are interested in Botany and/or history of science, this excursion is a must.

  • Linnaeus ' Hammarby is well worth a visit if you are passing. A very nice garden with views over the plain and worth seeing exhibits about Linnaeus and his life and deeds in the wings. Don't miss the guided tour of the main house, which was very instructive, not just about Linnaeus but also about life in Sweden in 1700-century. The Cafe also must belong to one of the better ones in Uppsala and that alone is worth a visit. Not only for the pastries, but also for the outside terrace in the Apple Orchard. The downside is that with 1.5 km from the nearest bus stop is a little difficult to get there without a car.

  • Beautiful garden and a nice walk through a small wood. All would be FREE anywhere else, here, overpriced for being priced in the first place. If not native Swedish, ring ahead or check their website for information on the English tour. One a day, first thing, missed it and then got told off as translating for non Swedish speakers. Made us feel very uncomfortable after they had robbed us of our money. Terrible customer service.
  • An interesting refreshing location with a rich history.
  • A relaxing place to know about Carlos Lineo
  • Local enthusiasts have transformed the house with surroundings of Carl von Linné into a living replica of the years 1750 - 1770. At festive occasions even dressed like him with friends. Best season is spring / early summer when majority of flowers bloom.
  • Wonderful walk around the house.
