The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala – for anyone with an interest in nature
The Linnaean Gardens are a perfect excursion for anyone wishing to learn more about nature and are part of Uppsala's history. The Botanical Gardens feature plants from all over the world. Here, you can learn everything about both rainforest and desert plants as well as common Swedish trees. The Linnaeus Garden was Linnaeus' own garden. It was here that he carried out most of his work. At Linnaeus' Hammarby, you can see how Linnaeus and his family lived in the 1700s.
We have shows for all ages, from children in preschool to young people in lower and upper-secondary school. They can be about anything from describing plants, finding out where the taste in chocolate, vanilla ice cream and cinnamon buns comes from to how evolution works. We also organise other activities for school and preschool, such as gardening, exhibitions, music and dance.
You can also take advantage of our self-guided tours. Linné Online is a web resource for pupils and teachers in lower and upper-secondary school who want to learn more about Linnaeus and how modern research is linked to his work.
