Linnaeus’ Hammarby

A guided tour of Linnaeus’ Hammarby takes about one hour and includes both the manor and the garden. As no more than 45 people can be admitted to the manor at any one time, it is essential that all groups book in advance. You can only visit the manor with a guide.

All groups of more than 10 people have to book their visit in advance. The best time for a group visit in May – August is before 10:30, 13:30–14:30 or after 16:30.

Why not take the opportunity to book a guided tour of the Linnaeus Garden and the Linnaeus Museum (on Svartbäcksgatan in Uppsala) or the Botanical Garden in connection with your visit to Hammarby?
