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.

The building is currently rejuvenated and not open tourist visits. The option for you is to go near by and visit the place where the building of the first swidish university was once.

This is the historical main building at Uppsala University. It's just in front of the cathedral and, on special occasions, hosts free events (specially during Christmas). It has an orchestra room that is quite beautiful.

The building was about to begin a major renovation when I was there. While still open you could see teams of restorers on scaffolding doing painstaking work on the ceiling paintings. The main hall made me wonder if I had wandered into a grand theatre...More

The Uppsala University main building is definitely worth a visit when in town. Its interior and exterior are equally stunning and it is not at all far from the cathedral and the much recommended Museum Gustavianum.
