Parks and Gardens
There are many beautiful parks and gardens in Uppland, where you can enjoy a great floral splendour and exciting events.
Stroll through the romantic English park on meandering paths, admire the geometric designs and pruned hedges of the baroque park, or inspect Linnaeus’ carefully selected plants. Or smell the flowers in dazzling flowerbeds, have a picnic shaded by centuries-old trees and enjoy the well-kept gardens.
Carl Linnaeus lived and worked in our flower-rich Uppland. He wandered here on excursions with his students, and exchanged garden plants with his friends and colleagues.
We invite you to come and enjoy the parks and gardens of Linnaeus’ Uppland. You might like to delight your senses with a fragrant profusion of flowers, and build happy memories in pleasant company in a historic setting. You might want to buy flowers and plants from the garden centre or take home a unique souvenir created by Uppland’s local crafts makers. Whatever your preference, we can promise you uplifting, life-affirming experiences.
