We came to this small Swedish town from Copenhagen in a day tour and on our eay had a small stopover in this cathedral. From outside this stone structure looks impressive. The surrpunding green landscape in the heart of yhe town provides contrast. The prayer room is not very big and looks out of fairy tale. Loved the place for... More

This is a fascinating piece of architectural and religious history dating from early 11th century. The golden alter is a beautiful center piece. It currently has an intriguing art exhibition celebrating 'silence' in the crypt by Agneta Hemert and Håkan Bengtsson (running until 28 August 2016)

Lund Cathedral is a very old, very large and very beautiful building. It has been the place of a number of events through history. There is an extensive wikipedia-page on the cathedral which is worth reading through on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lund_Cathedral

This is a must if you are in Lund. This place is historical and impressive, with a fantastic astronomical clock. The best time to see the clock is on Saturday in the mornings (10 or 11 am I believe). Make sure to go down to the crypt and if you have the chance find out about the story of Fin!

It is a nice looking church on the outside. The inside of the church is less spectacular with the exception of the astronomical clock. You don't find them in a lot of places especially not in churches. This fact alone is worth a visit.

Merely passing by this cathedral implores you to crane your neck to follow it's immense stone towers proudly jutting up into the grey clouded sky. Standing back and taking it in from the sidewalk instills a smokey sense of history, of time passing and standing still. When viewed from inside it's walls the experience shifts from the severe and looming... More

Beautiful building and interesting. Definitely worth a visit while you are passing. It has been kept beautifully and there is no entrance fee to visit which some such buildings now impose.

This beautiful old cathedral is definitely worth stopping into when you're in Lund. Centrally situated, it's hard to miss its two tall towers. Entry is free and you can wander around the main hall as well as the crypt. There are also regular guided tours in Swedish and English which let you take in a lot more of the history... More
