Worth it just for the clock and the crypt. Also the architecture. Amazing ceilings and carvings. Read up on the history.

This cathedral was my favorite that I visiting in Sweden. It has an awesome spirit about it- it feels friendly and warm, like the rest of Lund. It also houses an awesome medieval astronomical clock that is one of two (I think two- maybe three)...More

Lovely historic church, very impressive. We only stopped long enough to walk through the vestibule and sanctuary but it was a peaceful glorious place.

Fine, romanesque facade carvings, a great, unified space, a crypt with fine columns and a late Gothic astronomical clock; this is a gem. In addition there is no admission fee, and the opening hours are generous even in Winter. What’s there not to love?

We were lucky enough to arrive on Advent Sunday and spend some time in this beautiful place. It was packed! So heartwarming. As we don't speak Swedish the service was mainly followed simply by the pattern of a service, but the music, wow, this cathedral...More
