Hello!
Depending if you are counting on doing daytrips from Uppsala. If you are travelling by car or not.
I would suggest minimum 2 nights.
If you have Uppsala as a hub, you could stay upp to 4-5 nights and do some nice daytrips.

You can do the essentials - The Cathedral, the Castle, the rune stones in the University Park, Old Uppsala, Gustavianum and the Linnean gardens in 2-3 days.
If you give it 2-3 days more you’ll have time to cherish some hidden gems like Biotopia, Bror Hjorts House, King Björns Mound, The City Garden and The City Woods and be able to visit several of Uppsala’s cafés and patisseries.

Uppsala is nice when the late summer and early autumn, which is now (end of september). 1 day tour in Uppsala will cover all the touristic attractions as the famous Cathedral (Uppsala Domkyrka) in Scandinavia, conserts and guided tour in specific days and can be verified by local tourist info center. As Uppsala is a university-town then the next famous attraction would be the university main building which just re-opened after its reconstruction. Library Katarina Rediviva offers beautiful and ancient architecture but the students who stays in there don't appreciate people walking around (reasonble enough). A park in the city where you can have a coffee break (fika) and walk along the river. Public botanical garden beside the castle. Uppsala consert & congress hall (very close to centralstation) offers a view of the city. Check out Instagram "destination_uppsala" for latest photos of Uppsala and
www.destinationuppsala.se for suggestions.

1-2 days could be covering some local life, as taking a lunch at market hall (Saluhallen), having coffee at eg Günterska and taking a walk outside Uppsala city center and experiencing the colorful autumn in Gamla Uppsala. For the evening, there are plenty restaurants and bars in the city center where you can have reasonble dinner, tapas at La Parilla, swedish food at Stationen or Aaltos and american-asia cross at JayFu or seafood at Hambergs Fisk.

Have fun!

It depends on what you want to experience. You can get a guided tour including the story behind and places where Pelle Svanslös (a cartoon) was written. There is the Church where Gustav Wasa is buried and the history around him and the church, then I would recommend you to visit some of the University buildings, and the Library Katarina Rediviva. There is a really nice cafe along the river, Günterska, that's serves nice coffee and great cakes. Depending on your budget I would eat at Hamergs Fisk (fish and seafood) or JayFu if you have a big wallet or a burger at Dylan's or Bastard Burgers if your wallet is smaller. If your lucky and you visit on a weekend I would go for a brunch at one of the nations (belongs to the university). That is home made food for cheap and you get to hang out with a lot of students.
Welcome to one of Swedens oldest city's.

If you only want to see the central parts of the city, its enough with 1-2 days. It's quite small so you can reach a lot of sites and museum by walking.
