We're not a particularly religious family, so I think it's kinda' odd that whenever we're in Europe, we make sure to visit the great churches. And this one definitely counts. We visited the crypt (pretty cool) and were also lucky enough to be there when the astronomical clock chimed at 3 pm on a Friday. A small audience began assembling... More

The church is quite impressive building both from the outside as well as from the inside. It's located in the heart of Lund, you cannot not see it. Take a peak inside and go to see almost 900 years old piece of art!

Make sure to go down and check out the "giant" Finn. Make sure you find out the story about how he built the church and tried to tear it down! Also try to see the big clock as the figures are moving. Both children and grownups enjoy this church!

Located in the middle of Lund is the impressive cathedral with its imposing twin towers. There is much to see in this medieval masterpiece (dating back to the early 1100's) including the crypt (with the Finn pillar & three rare bronze pillars), the beautifully carved oak choir stalls, the big seven-branch candelabra, the Absidens mosaic, the fine, majestic altar and...

A wonderful building to explore, lots of roman and gothic arcitecture. The crypt is worth a visit too. It is well worth hanging arounfd to wait for the Astronomical clock to go off as it is magnificent to watch.

Have visited Lund a few times but have never stopped by the cathedral before. Wow, were we surprised. We are not religious people but found the cathedral both beautiful, serene, and interesting. Not super ornate, but definitely gorgeous Abd worth a visit. And it's free. And don't miss the basement.

Lund Cathedral is a lovely Romanesque church dating from the 11th century and still a focal point of everyday life in modern-day Lund. It is accessible for free and visitors should check the cathedral's web site beforehand so as not to miss the chiming of the astronomical clock with its moving characters, a piece of mechanical marvel dating to the...
