Botanical Garden: guided tours
Guided tours of the Botanical Garden may be booked throughout the year. You can choose between a tour of the Tropical Glasshouse or an outdoor tour.
During the summer months it is also possible to arrange a tour of the Linnaeus Garden (the original botanic garden on Svartbäcksgatan) or Linnaeus' Hammarby (Linnaeus’ summer residence outside Uppsala).
Linnaeus Garden and Linnaeus Museum
For guided tours of the Linnaeus Garden you can choose whether to visit just the Garden, just the Professor’s Residence (the Linnaeus Museum) or both attractions. The Linnaeus Museum has a maximum capacity of 40 people, of which no more than 15 people may be on the upper floor at any one time. For larger groups, we therefore recommend a combined tour of the Museum and Garden.
Group visits to the Linnaeus Museum may only be booked outside normal opening times, i.e. before 11.00 or after 16.30.
It is essential that all groups larger than 10 persons book their visit to the Garden and/or the Museum in advance.
A guided tour of Linnaeus’ Hammarby takes about one hour and includes both the dwelling house and the garden. As no more than 45 people can be admitted to the dwelling house at any one time, it is essential that all groups book in advance. The dwelling house can only be visited with one of our staff guides.
All groups larger than 10 people should book their visit in advance. Best time for a group visit in May – August is before 10.30 am, 1.30-2.30 pm or after 4.30 pm.
