Overview
More
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.

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.

Worth the trip. Main house is by guided tour which was in English. The other buildings are self guided. A pretty, small garden with lots of seating and also a shaded walking area.
