The Botanical Garden: book a guided tour
You can book guided tours of the Botanical Garden throughout the year. Choose between a tour of the Tropical Greenhouse or a tour of the garden.
In 2023 the entrance at Villavägen 8 is closed. Do you plan to visit the Tropical Greenhose or Café Victoria and arrive with coach. Take into account that the walk from the arrival point to the greenhouse, via the gate at Norbyvägen, is approximately 300 meters.
During the summer months it is also possible to arrange a tour of the Linnaeus Garden (the original botanical garden on Svartbäcksgatan) or Linnaeus' Hammarby (Linnaeus’ country estate outside Uppsala).
Guided tours in the Linnaean Gardens
Throughout the summer we offer scheduled guided tours in the Linnaeus garden, Linnaeus's Hammarby and the Botanical Garden.
Once a month from October to April you can attend a guided tour of the Tropical Greenhouse (in Swedish).
