Owner description: Every year more than 700,000 people visit Lund Cathedral, Swedens most visited Church. People of all ages and types are attracted here for a variety of reasons. Besides those who attend services or seek spiritual renewal, there are many tourists groups from different countries, school classes as well as visiting parties from other churches and congregations. Lund Cathedral was consecrated in 1145, and contains many well-known artifacts and features of considerable historical interest. Please don´t miss to visit the Cathedral Forum, Domkyrkoforum, a brand new modern building just south of the Cathedral. Here you can see two films about the Cathedral, drink coffee/tea, and get information.

It is open, uncrowded in the evening and beautiful. Check out the working clock just inside the front doors o the left, it is huge and operational. Organ recitals are daily at 10 am and is something to behold.

If you like to visit churches, this is a must. More then 900 years old and important history for both Sweden and Denmark. Light a candle, feel the athmosphere and look at the amazing astronomical clock Horologium mirabile Lundense.

The sheer existance of a romanesque cathedral in the far north of Europe is an attraction in itself, and it is beautiful inside. Worth a detour. Beside the old university the cathedral is the main attraction of the picturesque town of Lund which has managed to keep its medieval central town area more or less intact.

This church is a big, beautiful stone structure. The astronomical clock is very cool to see (and working as far as I can tell). Also, at the back of the church there are steps that go down into the crypt, which is also very interesting to see. The age, size, and construction of this church make it a sight to see. It is downtown and has no fee, so there are lots of reasons to see it and none not to!

Actually attended a Baptism at the church. The clock within the church is a must see. Also, must see and read the legend of the giant/midget carved into the pillars in the basement. The list of bishops is impressive too since it goes back to the 1600's
