I really enjoyed this site. There is a lot of information that is easily gained by reading the placards and the multilingual staff seemed friendly. You could easily spend a half-day enjoying a leisurely walk around the mounds, visiting the museum and reading through the...More

We were staying in Uppsala for the weekend and Gamla Uppsala is a short drive (or walk if you are up to it) from the city. There had been a fresh fall of snow overnight, which was ideal for me because I was looking forward...More

Lovely historical spot to escape in the nature very close to Uppsala city therefore easily accessible by bus. Various events take place there throughout the year mainly celebrating the viking way of life. Check out the museum and cafe while there too

Gamla Uppsala is definitely worth the short bus ride from the central station to this historic Viking site. When you get off the bus you'll walk along a quiet road a short distance to arrive face to face with the church, and then the burial...More

If compared to the number of tourists visiting Uppsala, those going to Gamla are really a minority. WHAT A MISTAKE! The place, the church, and the museum are only a few of the many things worth your time! The place is very easy to reach...More
