Linnaeus’ Hammarby

Linnaeus' Hammarby preserves an authentic 18th century milieu which few other Swedish manor-houses do. The small estate, 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 the manor reflects the private life of Linnaeus as well as his scientific work. Beneath the trees in Linnaeus’ former orchard, shade-tolerant plants from Linnaeus’ day form rich carpets between the winding paths.
