Lund Cathedral reviews
This is a beautifully built cathedral. It is worth a visit with a day trip from Malmo. The interior of the cathedral is beautiful and you can visit the basement of the church as well. A must visit... more »
Wonderful cathedral and its surrounding. It's definitely worth to go inside. Don't forget to also visit the tomb inside more »
Better than a lot of other Swedish Churches. Quite ornate and well preserved plus a crypt downstairs. There is an astrological/zodiac clock there which advertises its chiming (implying its worth watching), it isn’t. If you’re there stay but don’t feel the need to return (like we did) :(
Ancient cathedral restored to its original Romanesque appearance. Impressive architecture, and plenty to see. A very welcoming place compared to other cathedrals in Europe. The astronomical clock is most impressive and puts on a show at noon and 1500 most days. An important historical site for Sweden/Denmark. Bring in the town centre, there is much else to see if you're not that interested in Christian architecture.
