About
The small estate Hammarby, 15 km SE of Uppsala, was bought by Carl Linnaeus in 1758. He wanted a farm on the countryside where he could spend the summers together with his family, away from the unhealthy quarters of Uppsala. Today, few Swedish manor-houses preserve such an authentic milieu. It reflects the private life of Linnaeus as well as his scientific work.

Great excursion

If you have time when visiting Uppsala in Sweden, try to squeeze in a visit to the Linnaeus' Hammarby located a few minutes from town. Unlike the botanical gardens in town this museum has preserved both the 18th century buildings and the gardens and the park which gives a unique insight to Linnaeus and his work. Well worth a visit

Beautiful countryside estate with interesting history
Aug 2019
The small estate Hammarby, 15 km Southeast of Uppsala, was bought by Carl Linnaeus in 1758. He wanted a farm on the countryside where he could spend the summers together with his family, away from the unhealthy quarters of Uppsala. It is located in the beautiful countryside landscape. There is museum area, with buildings, exhibitions, café and shop. Guided tour in English at 12.30 - a possibility to visit the main building. You can use the same ticket as for Linnaeus garden and museum. Just be aware that it is located not so close to the public transport. Some countryside walk should be expected.

Very authentic

Be sure to go on the guided tour in the house. The inside (except some furniture) has been kept intact from Linneaus time which is very unusual. Even my 4-year-old daughter found the tour interesting (and not too long ;-).

The parks are nice for some walking, be sure to take the time and explore them without stress. The café is good enough but not special in any way.

Interesting place to visit. Lovely surroundings, very good food at the café and also a cute little shop. I went for the guided tour of the main house which I can recommend.

If you're taking the bus it will take about 25 minutes to walk to Hammarby from the bus stop.

We visited with our Swedish friends who had not been before, and we were all very impressed. Well kept grounds and an excellent tour of the house given in English by a knowledgeable guide.

Great place to walk around and look at plats, trees, and buildings. Good and cozy atmosphere, calm place (at least in fall when we visited).
Very good café. Eat there!

Little red painted houses and flowerbeds, a fine orchard and a good café. Linné must have liked it here.

Thank you Marie! One wonders what Linnaeus would have thought about the ice cream we sell! Best regards, Anna B

Linnaeus history

I was looking to visit here after visiting the Linnaeus garden in the city. I would think the best way to get there would be by renting a bike if possible. We took a bus from the main train station; however, it stops about 2 km from the site and only runs every hour on a Sunday. Then, you need to walk up a narrow country road. We decided to take a taxi back and it was 300 sek. That's a bit much to just visit Hammarby. So, if the weather is good, a bike ride would be nice and there are other sites along the way.

I would suggest the tour of the main house. It's included in the visit and is the main attraction. Due to timing, we took the Swedish tour and used the supplied English guide books. It was fine; although, I think we missed out on the small details. If you have time there a trails for taking a walk.

It's a good value for the entrance fee and I would go again.
