What you'll do
After stepping off the train, enjoy coffee and pastries at a tiny coffee shop which serves some of the best espresso in the city! Then stroll along the riverbank and down the cobbled streets in this cultural area.
Explore the city and visit its most famous landmarks, like Uppsala Cathedral, which is the oldest Gothic style castle in northern Europe, and the castle that’s perched on top of the hill, before you enjoy a tasty lunch at an authentic local restaurant.
You may want to take the short bus journey to Gamla Uppsala, which is the ancient pagan part of the city, where you can still see the Viking royal burial mounds; there are three barrows which date back to the 4th century, as well as the burial places of the gods Odin, Thor and Freya.
Before taking the train back, you may like to browse in the unique and quirky shops, or visit the Linneaus Museum and botanical garden. This is an important cultural and scientific landmark, as Carl Linneaus, whose home the museum is located in came up with the scientific classification for naming species of plants and animals.
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary based on your literary loves, and to agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

A Baker's haven
I run a small bakery back in the US so I came to Stockholm with bread on the mind. I spent days exploring the best of bakeries in Stockholm with a Local, and I was recommended to go to Uppsala for even more authentic bakeries. I got in touch with CityUnscripted again and they organised this day for me with James my guide. After walking through he main highlights and a few independent galleries, James took me to one of his favourite bakeries, Güntherska Hovkonditoriet. Obviously, I was in my element. I'll never forget their kanelbullar. Tack James!
