This’s accessible by foot from The Uppsala Central Station. Do not miss it when you’re in Uppsala. The beautiful architecture, coupled with the flowers and blue sky portrayed a picturesque scene. It reminded me of my university day. It’s a pity that I did not do enough reading while visiting and only discovered what I missed after I was home.

The building was closed because of the health situation. I admired the outside and read about its history. Maybe I'll get to see the inside if I get back to Uppsala.

Nice to just have a look around the entrance hall. Haven't been at any event in the aula since the recent restoration, but is was pretty good before.

Try and get a view inside the main hall and the lecture rooms. Fantastic architecture and decorations. If possible, go upstairs to get a glimpse of the meeting rooms - I suspect that they are not open to the general public, though.

I went there for a couple of days since my conference was set there. It was pretty cold inside but still beautiful.

The main building seems to be functioned as the office from outside but they also use it use as a lecture room.

Even though I have not that much details about the building but if you have time just for 30 mins. It is worth for it.

One more thing, in front of the building is also very nice.
Perfect for the photo spot!

This place is historical and if you are interested in history it is a must. Do not miss to have a look at the hall, where all the academic festivities has taken place and still do. If you can join a guided tour, if that is not possible you can of cource take a stroll on your own. If it during the acadeic year you might ran into a student to give you some guidance. Downstairs there is a restaurant, where students and teachers have their meals. You are welcome to join them any time the restaurant is open.

Very pretty building. Glad to have seen the main hall inside, I guess other than that there wasn’t much to see. If you’re walking by, do go in.

This is a huge building with interesting architecture on the ouside. Unfortunately it was closed on the day I was there so I didn't get to go inside, so this review is strictly for the ouside. The grounds around was nice with lots of trees and there are some real Nordic Runes sitting around the grounds.
