Eating and shopping at Linnaeus' Hammarby

Visitors enjoying a coffee break in the apple orchard. It is a sunny day in May and the apple trees are just about to bloom.

Summertime the estate Hammarby was a welcome retreat from the busy town for Carl Linnaeus. After the death of the famous scientist his wife and daughters lived at the farm year around.

Where the stable once stood you now find a museum shop and a local café. Outside in the apple orchard you will find cosy seatings.
