Uppsala’s Secrets Private Driving TourBook this tour now
STOCKHOLM. 7hrs. What do Swedens’s first University and largest cathedral have in common? Uppsala, of course! From former scientist to students of today, discover this intellectual hot spot on our Uppsala’s Secrets Private Driving Tour.
Approximately 60 minutes by transport from Stockholm we find Uppsala. A picturesque, easily accessible, cosy city, with cultural treasures that have remained hidden from the large crowds of tourists primarily sightseeing in Stockholm. The fourth largest city in Sweden, it's the perfect twin city to Stockholm, making for an excellent opportunity to see two destinations in one trip.
What are these secret gems Uppsala has to offer, you ask? First, a man with love for botanical gardens and living organisms. Friends with royalty and teacher to many, he is still famous for his work with plants and animals. His connection to Uppsala? We’ll discuss his work and share his tale at the Botanical Gardens behind Uppsala Castle. Can you guess to whom we are referring?
In the meantime, things are getting “warmer” as we walk closer to another treasure in Uppsala. This one is two-fold: it's the oldest remaining university building at Uppsala University (which also happens to be the oldest university in Sweden), and it contains discoveries and inventions developed by famous scientists from the university. Can you guess where we are?
Stepping back outside, we stroll down the street in the direction of the largest cathedral in Scandinavia, Uppsala Cathedral. Our quest for the secrets of Uppsala brings us to the tomb of one of Sweden’s most famous kings (he's probably the Danes' least favourite king). Do you know who this is?
Travelling by our very own private transport to and from Uppsala, we will be accompanied by the quaint Swedish countryside. Having gone off the beaten path to visit a unique destination in Sweden, we're back in the capital. You’ve now unlocked the door to Uppsala's Secrets. The question is, can you keep them?
