    Walking down the meadows behind the house is a wonderful experience as they are taken care of like I describe above and it really feels like you've stepped back in time.

    This place has even got paid by the county heritage funds to manage the landscape as it was done in Linnaeus' days. Therefore, you will see old fashioned hay making and meadow keeping as well as find plants in the kitchen garden which were common in the 18th century. Horses play a great role in harvesting things. This has of course led to the saving of various biodiversity such as beetles and birds which are not that common in Sweden otherwise these days.

    This is it - well, an exact replica of it, since the original one was lost in one of the many fires frequent in a county full of wooden houses and forest. The original one actually stood at a 90 degree angle (you can see the foundation stones in the grass).

    Bus 123 from Vaexjo or Aelmhult takes you to the lower end of Rashult, along the main road. Get off here and you then have a 15 minute walk up to Linneaus' house - slightly further than it used to be as they have rerouted the road due to the Malmoe-Stockholm high speed railway but you can take a shortcut if you walk (for cars, it's a one way system so you go around the fields when arriving and leave the shorter way).

    Favorite thing: Few places in Sweden are as "typical" as this if you want to experience the folkloristic (i.e. not the late night partying that also goes on) midsummer celebrations. Here, the event is on the Midsummer Day rather than Eve, with folk music and costumes in the great floral setting.

    Fondest memory: When we were children and granddad's sister ran the cafe next to Linneaus' cottage and we used to eat ice cream and watch the trains.
