you don't often get to see huge, fully romanesque structures like this. there have been modernizations over the years, but the romanesque character is unaffected by them.

The cathedral is easily accessible in the centre of Lund. The cathedral and the churh played a central role in the history of Lund and this is well worth a visit.

The history of this church makes it a requirement when visiting this area of Sweden. We came with a resident of the city who gave us a private tour. The structure, Romanesque, makes the interior seem so much wider and lighter than the gothic cathedrals. We were there just before 12 noon. A pastor (did it in English, then in... More

Lund Chatedral is a must see if you visit Lund. The church was build around year 1100 and was made in Roman style by builders from Rhen and Italy. It's in active use and there is many concerts and event arranged in the church. Cathedral looks majestic both from the outside and inside and you can also visit the crypt... More

Imposing 11th-12th century cathedral in romanesque style. The most impressive aspect is the exterior, with rather harmonious proportions and lovely architectural details all around. The interior is simple and severe, with relatively little sculptural elements. In the left transept there are some interesting decorative sculptures. In the beginning of the left nave there's an astronomical clock that goes active twice... More

I love this place as you literally feel the peace as you enter. This is one of the absolute oldest churches in the whole of Scandinavia and it also houses a famous clock that chimes twice a day (at noon and 3pm I believe)

The fantastic medieval astronomical clock is worth a visit on its own, but there are plenty of other great things to see here.

Lund Cathedral is one of the biggest in Sweden. It has a lot of very interesting stories and a working clock of more than 500 years! Tip: Saturday morning you can hear the organ. Try to schedule a guided visited (english available) because the priest knows a lot of the history. Tip 2: If it is sunny, buy a great... More

Looks like a a wonder from age of empire, huge (in Swedish standards) and powerful, built in big blocks of stones. There is a crypt in the cellar with graves from old important people.
