Local merits

Uppsala has both charm and much to offer. Regardless of whether you are interested in art, nature or history, Uppsala has much a prodigious selection of must-sees.

Uppsala has many museums for the history-minded
If history is your thing, you’ll want to explore Uppsala Cathedral, Scandinavia’s largest and tallest church. Be filled with awe at the sight of the Augsburg Art Cabinet or the anatomical theater in the Museum Gustavianum, Uppsala University’s oldest standing building. Or visit Uppsala Castle where many crucial events in Swedish history have taken place.

Visit a botanical garden or see modern architecture
Those who appreciate greenery and beautiful gardens can follow in the footsteps of Carl Linneus, in the Linnaean Garden or the Botanical Gardens, or learn more about the regional nature at the interactive museum Biotopia.

Uppsala is also home to Carolina Rediviva, the oldest university library in the country, founded in  1620. In the entrance to the library you will find an exhibition room containing the very valuable sixth-century ”Silver Bible”, musical notations in Mozart’s hand, medieval manuscripts and the  Olaus Magnus Carta Marina, printed in 1539.

Congress and event cards for public transport
UL, the Public Transport Department, has in cooperation with Destination Uppsala issued a congress and event card for public transport within all of Uppsala county. Both cost-effective and simple to use.

Tourist information personnel on-site during your meeting
Destination Uppsala offers companies and arrangers designated information personnel on-site to provide service for participants before and during their visit to Uppsala county. Participants also have the opportunity to purchase an Uppsala pass. The tourist information personnel are both highly knowledgeable of and hip to the city and its environs, are skilled in languages and are service-minded.
