The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala

Self-led visits

You are welcome to bring your class or your pre-schoolers to our gardens. Please call us or msend an e-mail to our booking office in advance and we will recommend the best spots for your group to visit. 

In The Botanical Garden you can learn about Swedish trees and shrubs (in Swedish) or print a map to find all our nesting boxes for birds.

The sign tell a tale

All plants in the Linnaean Gardens are labelled with name, family, country of origin and ”personal number”. Read more here about what you can learn from a plant label.

Svenska träd och buskar

Följ stigmarkeringar och skyltar i barockträdgården och gamla trädgården (kvarteret mellan Thunbergsvägen och Norbyvägen). Där kan ni lära er mer om de vanligaste svenska träden och buskarna, hur du känner igen dem och vad de används till.

Fågelholkar för ökad mångfald

I Botaniska trädgården finns flera olika fågelholkar uppsatta. Kan du hitta tornfalkens sittpinne, kattugglans boplats och fladdermössens holkar? 

Skriv ut en karta och gå på holkjakt i Botaniska trädgården.
