You’re only a stone’s throw from everything in Uppsala. You can while away the hours shopping in an array of both small shops and larger stores that line the city’s streets and grace its shopping centres, or why not browse the charming little boutiques in the city’s old town. Get close to performers at a gig at Katalin, or be entranced by an imposing concert in the city’s new landmark, the Uppsala Konsert & Kongress. Be part of Sweden’s history at Uppsala Castle, Uppsala Cathedral, and the Museum Gustavianum, or why not go wild on the dance floor at the renowned Flustret or one of the other bars in the city. Experience the floral grandeur of the Linnaeus’ Garden and in the City Park, or have fun and be creative at Biotopia. Everything is within walking distance.
