Book a school visit

The Linnaean Gardens are a perfect excursion for anyone wishing to learn more about nature and are part of Uppsala's history. We have shows for all ages, from children in preschool to young people in lower and upper-secondary school. 

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.
