  • The estate was built in the 18th century, but is maintained in good condition. Now you can visit with 11 to 17. But only Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

  • Quiet and auspicious atmosphere, beautiful and well cared for, not far from the city. Living in Uppsala or in its environs here want to return for walks, very few people

  • 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.
  • Very nice environment with many different plants. Well preserved buildings and a lovely Apple Orchard. Unfortunately the long queue for coffee with only one served in the Café. In addition, very expensive. Expensive entrance fee (£ 9) including display of Linné 's apartment building. Rude guide at the display. In conclusion, noted that it is only open on Sundays.
