  • 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.
  • Nice wide walking paths, passable with the stroller forward to a stump stood in the way in the midst of a gate. Nice café with a souvenir shop. Free clean toilets.

  • Very nice environment with many different plants. Well preserved buildings and a lovely Apple Orchard. Unfortunately the long queue for coffee with only one who served in the Café. Also, very expensive. Pricey admission (80 Euro) including display of Linné 's apartment building. Unengaged guide at showdown. In summary, it can be noted that it is only open on Sundays.
