I visited before the much needed renovation. The place is huge and very Swedish. Definitely worth a visit. Has a Nice little cafe open to both students and visitors, but limited opening times.

Right now (october 2017), it is quite messy and you enter through the side entrance - not worth a visit yet but go there when the renovations are over.

Whilst a beautiful building there was very little here to see. A pity. There were good views from the windows in the stacks.

Never seen such a beautiful place to study or just to stay reading your book. So many different places to stay. Full of light. Huge building near the center of the city that deserves to be visited.

Great library combining modern bookshelves with historic displays on ground floor . Don't miss the section displaying Sweden's most famous silver bible

The most interesting exhibition showing some of Carl von Linne's original work. A very lovely building with historic architecture. Such a nice place to visit for a smaller and quicker exhibition when in Uppsala. 1.5hrs is enough for this siting.

The library is a nice location to relax and to work. The exhibition is very interesting and well constructed. Enjoy the view from the library to the castle and down to the city.
