Uppsala Botanical Garden
The Botanical Garden is one of Uppsala’s main tourist attractions. Here you can enjoy the grand baroque garden, visit the twohundred-year-old orangery, with its beautifully magnificent rooms, or find inspiration for your own gardening.
In the Botanical Garden, you can marvel at a huge diversity of plants from around the world, all year round. During the summer Café Victoria, in the former washhouse, serves light lunches, satisfying sandwiches and buns and cakes.
The garden has more than 8000 species. Many of them were collected on research expeditions, others are included in biodiversity conservation projects. Garden styles from the 1600s and 1700s to the present are also represented. The latest addition is Blomväxternas släktträd, the family tree of the flowering plants. This illustrates Linnaeus’ science as it is today, in line with our current understanding of plant evolution.The Tropical Greenhouse, Uppsala’s only rainforest, features the popular giant water lily.
Prinsessan Estelles skandinaviska fjäll is an installation that enables Uppsala residents and visitors to familiarise themselves with the Scandinavian alpines growing in planting pockets among 300 tonnes of rock.
