What To Expect

Uppsala Domkyrka
Built around 1270 and consecrated in 1435, magnificent Uppsala cathedral is the city's most distinctive landmark. It has evolved and been altered numerous times throughout the centuries, including a major renovation between 1885 and 1893 in neo-Gothic style, which involved the addition of the tall-pointed spires, stained glass windows, and beautiful murals.
At the east end of the choir are the burial chapel and tomb of King Gustavus Adolphus (1576). Also buried in the cathedral are Carl von Linné (Linnaeus), Archbishop Nathan Söderblom, and the philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg.
In the Silver Chamber, among other treasures, you'll find the gilded reliquary of King Eric IX (St. Eric), who was killed by the Danes in 1160.
A gold brocade robe (c. 1400) that belonged to Queen Margaret, ruler of the united kingdoms of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, tops the collection in the north tower.

Museum Gustavianum
Funded by Gustavus Adolphus, the Gustavianum (c.1620), opposite the cathedral, is the former main building of Uppsala University. It contains the university's cultural history collections; Nordic antiquities; Egyptian antiquities; and an Anatomical Theatre, built on the roof in the 1660s.
Permanent exhibitions include Viking relics, such as priceless jewelry, medals, and swords; the history of Uppsala University; and Egyptian mummies. Temporary exhibitions round out the museum's offerings. The spectacular University Art Collection in the main building is also well worth exploring.

Uppsala University Main Building
Walking through the university is to steep oneself in the illustrious world of Swedish academia. The so called "new" university buildings were constructed in sumptuous Roman-Renaissance style between 1879-1886.
Grandeur is the order of the day, with the magnificent foyer leading to the grand auditorium and festival hall, which seats around 1,800 people. Portraits featuring royalty, distinguished university professors, and cultural figures adorn the walls.
The Museum of Evolution includes dinosaurs discovered in China, and the University Library (Carolina Rediviva) is the largest in Sweden, housing in excess of 5,000,000 volumes and more than 30,000 manuscripts.
The library's greatest treasure, and on permanent exhibition, is the world famous Codex Argenteus (Silver Bible), most likely dating from the 6th century.

Uppsala Castle (Uppsala Slott)
Overlooking the city, Uppsala Castle is the official residence of the County Governor and boasts a rich history. Many of the events that shaped Sweden took place here.
In 1567, a deranged and paranoid King Eric XIV ordered the execution of a group of noblemen in what became known as the Sture murders.
In 1654, the shocking abdication of Queen Kristina, as famously played by Greta Garbo in the Hollywood movie of the same name (although anglicised to Queen Christina), was announced in the Rikshallen (Hall of State).
And we can enjoy breathtaking views over Uppsala and the surrounding countryside from the battlements. Outside, you can stroll around the walking paths and explore the Botanical Gardens opposite the castle.

Gamla Uppsala
Roughly four kilometers north of Uppsala lies Gamla Uppsala (Old Uppsala), where the land of the Vikings awaits.

Spread across the landscape are more than 300 burial mounds, the last resting place of Viking Kings, Queens, and heroes of old.
When Christianity took hold in the 12th century, Gamla Uppsala eventually boasted a cathedral on the site where the ancient church (Gamla Uppsala Kyrka) now stands.

Linnaeus Garden
From the Stora Torg, Svartbäcksgatan runs northwest to the Linnaeus Garden (Linnéträdgården), which was curated by world famous botanist Carl Linnaeus (Carl von Linné).
Here, you'll find the museum, which was once his home. Throughout the house are exhibitions dedicated to Linnaeus' scientific achievements as well as personal belongings, mementos, furniture, and household items gathered over a lifetime.

Run since 1937 by the Linnaeus Society, this is a wonderfully maintained shrine to Linnaeus, his life, and the extraordinary time of enlightenment and discovery in which he lived.
