Biotopia and Vasaparken an experimental museum and park for nature lovers

Vasaparken is home to one of Uppsala’s most exciting playgrounds, and the nearby Biotopia museum makes it unmissable for all nature lovers with inquiring minds.

Rosénparken – a rippling gem for meeting friends and reflection

Rosénparken is a little gem of a park, between Upplandsmuseet (County Museum) and Saluhallen (Market Hall), where you can take a break from the bustle of the city. On hot summer days, the proximity to the river Fyrisån and the rippling animation of Asptrappan (an asp ladder) bring a welcome feeling of coolness.

Stadsträdgården – A lively park resonant with history

Stadsträdgården (City Garden) is Uppsala residents’ green living room, and a natural destination throughout the year. There are flowerbeds, expanses of grass, an outdoor stage, a large playground and the myth-shrouded “Island of Bliss” in the small lake, which was once a brick pit.

Engelska parken – the place for picnics and robust games

Carolinaparken, better known as Engelska parken (English Park) is ideal for taking your blanket, your picnic basket and a thick novel to read. Once you have settled down, you want to stay.
