“Lund Cathedral”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This is the oldest cathedral in Sweden dating back to 1145. The outside has weather well and stands very stoic. The inside is massive and contains a crypt and a astral logical clock. It is definitely a must see in Lund

“Nice!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Great place, very calm and beautiful! There is an impressive clock inside that you should check! Outside there are some seats where is nice to spend a few minutes watching the church (if the weather helps)!

“A mighty cathedral”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

It was a concert going on in the church, so we had only a short time to visit this mighty Romanesque church, we must come again and take a closer look.

“Service in English”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

What attracted us to this cathedral was the 5:00pm service in english. When we travel we are always curious about other churches. Lund cathedral has been around for a long time and you can feel the sense of history inside. The chancel area was interesting as there were many beautifully carved wooden seats. The clock is an amazing piece of work which I expect has few equals. Because we attended the service (communion) we did not take the time to really look around.
