1 review
Carl Linnaeus (Carl von Linné, 1707–1778) is one of the world’s best-known scientists. Linnaeus’ was a multi talented scientist that could call himself physician, botanist, geologist, zoologist and philosopher. He travelled, he observed, recorded, tested, analysed and published a large variety of manuscripts on many different topics. He sought a universal classification of all creation, animal, vegetable and mineral. It is called taxonomy: a classification system for the natural world to for the naming of species and order them according to their characteristics and relationships with one another. He spent more than 50 years in Uppsala and we will walk in his footsteps and see and experience some of the things and sights he saw some 300 years ago. Come and see some of the unique legacy he left behind and learn more about him and his contribution to our lives today!

It was a relief to find the cathedral open during a difficult time. I walked around without really knowing what I was looking at and found the brochures in several languages on the way out, next to the gift shop. I would suggest they be moved closer to the entrance or into the church. A very friendly man in the gift shop suggested I visit the treasury which contains very old textiles and gold and silver objects. The descriptions are available in Swedish, English and German. Since many things were closed, it was nice to have the cathedral open. Unfortunately, the cafe closed early and I missed my fika.

We did a half day trip to Uppsala from Stockholm and this church is our main destination. The church is about 30 minute walk from Uppsala Central Station. One side of the church’s exterior was under restoration and the view was spoilt by the scaffolding, so it’s a disappointment here. However, the sanctuary is beautiful and it also houses the tomb of a king and some notable people. We walked for quite a distance away to get a full view of the cathedral.

The bigger question is this: “should I make a special trip from Stockholm to see this cathedral?” While the Domkyrka is all the glowing superlatives, tallest in Scandinavia, and burial site of Swedish kings, unless you love cathedrals or are in Uppsala already, I would not make a special trip from Stockholm outside of summer months. I was here in February and the must-see museum across from the church was closed for renovations. The locally famous botanical garden was also closed for the winter. The cathedral was really nice, and there is a rather decent shopping street, yet there were not a lot of other supporting “must-sees” to make this 45 minute trek and train ticket from Stockholm worthwhile, even on a nice winter day.

A few minutes away (5KM) from the Gamla Uppsala is this church. Massive and beautiful. Many royal crypts in it too. Must visit!

I didn't get to go inside but the cathedral is very striking even from the outside. It is visible as you are driving into Uppsala and is a real centrepiece in the town.
