We visited Lund Cathedral around noon on a cold day in April and there were only a few people there. We could therefore roam around freely and the children were relaxed. There was an interesting art exhibition in a room next to the crypt. It was peaceful and beautiful.

This is a very nice Cathedral in the center of Lund. The interior is relatively dark, but the atmosphere of the place very special thanks to it.

Not a lot to see here. A nice mosaic above the alter. The crypt is definately worth a visit especially for the two pillar huggers. Clock inside is interesting. Goes off at 12.00 (13.00 on a sunday) and 15.00 and a large crowd gathers. A bit of an anti climax when it happens but a joyful moment

Such an iconic building in Lund. You simply can't miss it. The exterior is stunning and no matter winter, spring, summer or fall it is a beautiful photo object. For me it is what makes Lund, Lund. When the sun is out you can se tons of people leaning against the massive church walls just enjoying the warmth and light... More

Lund Cathedral has a fantastic astronomical clock, constructed in the 14th Century! It's a clock, a calendar, shows the phases of the moon, the setting of the sun, and can be used to calculate when mobile religious holidays fall! Totally fantastic - especially for a horologist or artist interested in time, temporarily, systems of knowledge, etc! Oh, and a nice... More

We ended up in Lund, by train from Denmark. Lovely little town with some wonderful cobbled streets. We visited the Cathedral which is very nice inside and has a fascinating astronomical/astrological clock inside.

A Roman cathedral built in the 1100 century. Has an amazing astronomical clock. Knights at the top clacking their lances and then moving in procession around Virgin Mary. There is also a crypt with the giant Finn
