Linnaean Garden

The botanical garden was first planted by Olof Rudbeck in 1655, making it the oldest in Sweden. After a period of decline, it was restored and maintained by Carl von Linné and became a major attraction during Linnaeus' own lifetime. In the garden orangery, you can find exhibitions about Linnaeus' successors and disciples. The building in the southern corner of the garden served as the residence of the Linnaeus family between 1743 and 1778. Today, it is a personal museum dedicated to Linnaeus' professional and personal life. Is part of the proposed Linnaean UNESCO World Heritage.

University Hall (Uppsala University)

Constructed in Italian renaissance Beaux-Arts style and was completed in 1887. Here major university events and occasional public concerts take place. In the hall you will find a café, a shop and a small exhibition about the history of Uppsala University. In the main hall you can also find Uppsala University's comprehensive coin cabinet, but it is only open to the public on special occasions. The controversial aphorism "Tänka fritt är stort men tänka rätt är större" (which translates into "Thinking free is great, but thinking right is greater"), attributed to the 18th century philosophy professor Thomas Thorild, are engraved at the auditorium entrance. The phrase "think right" has been misunderstood as "think as the authorities do". Thorild was however a radical for his time; his aphorism should be read as "think reasonably".
