Eating, shopping and mingling in The Botanical Garden
The Botanical Garden is a place to admire the plants, wander, exercise, or just enjoy life.
You can bring your own picnic for an al fresco meal on our lawns, or buy a delicious lunch or teatime treat at the summer café.
Presents and souvenirs of your visit can be purchased at the Tropical Glasshouse.
The Linneanum Orangery contains beautiful rooms that can be booked for parties and events.
The gardeners’ century-old bakery and wash house is now Café Victoria. Lunches and pastries made from local, organic and fairtrade ingredients, decorated with flowers from the garden, are served in the shade of parasols and venerable trees. Waffles and ice cream are on offer to tempt the children.
The Café is open daily from the beginning of May to the end of September.
Group visits may be booked by contacting Triller Mat & Bröd, tel. +46-18 55 18 10 or by e-mail.

Linneanum, the orangery of The Botanical Garden
Are you looking for somewhere to hold a business event, conference or celebration? It would be hard to find a more magnificent venue in central Uppsala than Linneanum. The beautiful Orangery and Linnésalen (Linnaeus Room), or the grand formal garden during the summer months, provide an exciting, impressive and atmospheric setting for your event.
The venue is available to book from the beginning of May until the end of September.
The catering partner of the Orangery is Cajsa's kök. They will work with you to create a tailor-made catering arrangement that integrates the aim, theme and menu of the event into a seamless whole.
A Year-round gift shop
Do you need a present for your host or hostess? In the Botanical Garden Shop, located in the Tropical Glasshouse, we sell honey from our own hives, soaps, teas, fridge magnets and beautiful flower-patterned trays.
The shop in the Tropical Glasshouse is open Saturdays and Sundays during the normal opening hours of the Glasshouse, and on weekdays during the winter sports holiday (in February), Easter, and the Culture holiday.
