Safety measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic

As of 5 October, The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala are back to normal opening hours and are open for pre-booked tours indoors and outdoors. We maintain some safety measures for the safety of you, our staff, and vulnerable visitors. The information below will help you prepare for your visit.

The information may be changed with short notice.

Safety measures to reduce the risk of contamination

  • There are safety screens at the tills.
  • There is hand sanitiser stations in the entrances.
  • Visitors may be directed one way in narrow passages and a limited number can visit small rooms at the same time.
  • We encourage visitors to use the automatic door buttons in The Tropical Greenhouse.

Reduced numbers of visitors in buildings and on tours

Our museums and greenhouses have several narrow spaces. Please be patient and wait for your turn if those rooms are busy. We do not enter narrow spaces on guided tours.

Booking is mandatory to our special tours. You need to buy your ticket to tours included in our programme in advance at or in the till in The tropical Greenhouse, open Saturdays and Sundays 12–15.
