Owner description: The Botanical Garden is one of Uppsala's most popular destinations. Here, you can enjoy the grandiose Baroque Garden, visit the 200 year old Orangery with its beautiful grand halls or find inspiration for home gardening among rockery plants, vegetables, summer plants and in the systemic quarters of woody plants. The Tropical Greenhouse is home to Uppsala's only rainforest!

Standing in the inner court of Uppsala Castle you will certainly look at the cathedral. (The location of the castle, as I understand, was chosen by the king's men to keep the church's men under observation and control.)

But don't forget to look 90 degrees to the left and admire the botanical garden. It is small (though larger than it appears from castle hill) and beautiful at almost any time of the year, well- maintained, and surprisingly diverse. It is part of the three Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala and well worth a visit, at certain period of the years romantic, and always fresh.

If you love flowers you need to visit this place. Just walking around in the summer time is fantastic with all flowers and all the different trees.

It is nice, but we liked the other garden (the one next to Linne's house) more. Linne's garden is smaller but nicer than this one.

The gardens have great potential. I visited in early June and not much was in bloom yet. By August, I expect that it will be gorgeous. It was free and it was early, so I should probably give it a higher rating.

Uppsala Botanical Gardens are not lush like a botanical garden in a southern country (though there is a Tropical Greenhouse next door if your're interested!). But it's elegant.

With the view of the castle, the gardens are amazing to stroll through when the sun is shining. As Sweden is a bit chilly, I find the gardens as most attractive and relaxing during summer (June to August).

The huge mega benches are great for photographing your - now - miniature loved one!

It's free to walk in the gardens, but sometimes they have exhibitions indoors that might have an entry fee.
