You are welcome to bring your class or your pre-schoolers to our gardens. Please call us or send 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 tells 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.
Trees and shrubs from Swedish nature
Native Swedish trees and shrubs are planted in the areas surrounding the building Linneanum and in the Baroque Garden. Along the the foot paths you will find signposts with species names. The texts are written in Swedish.
Gardens in three locations
The Linnaeus Garden with the Linnaeus Museum lie in central Uppsala, just north of the library. The Botanical Garden is directly west of Uppsala Castle. Linnaeus' Hammarby is in the parish of Danmark, about 15 km southeast of Uppsala.
