It's hard not to fall in love with Uppsala, a city often described as Sweden's most charming. With its storied history and vibrant cultural scene, Uppsala promises a unique and enriching experience for every visitor. At the heart of the city lies the iconic Uppsala Cathedral, the largest in Scandinavia. This monumental gothic structure dominates the city skyline and is sure to take your breath away. Don’t miss the opportunity to climb up its towers and enjoy the panoramic views. When in Uppsala, a visit to the Gustavianum, the city’s oldest building, and now functioning as the University Museum offers worth learning insights about the city's past and present. Right next to it, the Uppsala University Library, also known as Carolina Rediviva, houses the famed Codex Argenteus and a remarkable collection of manuscripts.
Uppsala is conveniently connected by road to Stockholm, with an average journey time of just under an hour by car, making it an excellent base point for exploring the surrounding region. Only a short drive north of Uppsala lies the Gamla Uppsala (Old Uppsala), an area steeped in mythical Norse lore. Here, you can visit ancient burial mounds that bear testimony to the city’s rich Viking history. Moreover, the Skokloster Castle, an impressive Baroque masterpiece located a 40-minute car drive from Uppsala, is regarded as the country’s most significant 17th Century building and is well worth a visit.
Further afield, the enchanting Stockholm archipelago is just a two-hour car drive from Uppsala. Home to over 30,000 islands, each with its unique charm, this untouched wilderness offers something for all nature lovers. You can spend a quiet afternoon exploring the quaint towns and villages dotted around the archipelago, or engage in activities like swimming and kayaking in the summer, and ice-skating in the winter. From Uppsala, you have the freedom to explore these fascinating destinations and more at your own pace, all from the comfort of your car.
