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.

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.

Find all the trees and shrubs on the map.
