TO DO For the family

Adventures for the whole family

In Uppsala, there are plenty of fun and exciting things to do for all ages.

Visit Evolutionsmuseet (Museum of Evolution) and go back several billion years, discover and experience nature at Biotopia or take a trip on Lennakatten along one of Sweden’s most beautiful railway lines.

There are plenty of adventures, fun activities and events for the whole family. In the box we have given you some tips about things the whole family can do together.

This is where Pelle Svanslös (Peter No Tail), Uppsala’s most famous cat, lives.
You’ve certainly heard of Pelle, whose tail was bitten off by a rat. Pelle is Uppsala’s most well-known cat and also the most good-natured. If you’re lucky you might meet him as you walk along Åsgränd and in the area around Öfre Slottsgatan. If not, you can stop anyway at Pelle Svanslös playground in the park next to where he lives. You can also go on a guided tour in Pelle’s “pawsteps”; you can get more information at UppsalaExperience.

Have some fun at one of Uppsala’s many playgrounds
Many of Uppsala’s playgrounds have exciting themes like the jungle, the circus or the farm. On Uppsala Municipality’s website (in Swedish), you can find out more about the playgrounds and a map showing you where they are.
