A grandiose romanesque cathedral with later additions. The finelly decorated apse and the astronomical clock are the most impressive features. An organ concert is a must.

Beautiful with a soothing atmosphere, a bit like a medieval castle although with a mystical crypt. Imagine the people who celebrated mass there a thousand years ago, and what Lund was like at the time!

It was a nice church but not really special. Would have been nice if there was some English information about Finn the giant in the dungeons.

We've been lucky enough to catch a free guided tour around and inside the church, the lady was super-nice and told interesting things. For me, the most interesting parts were the crypt and the clock on near the main entrance.

It's a beautiful cathedral! but the clock is something you don't see in every cathedral, and it also has a calendar underneath through which you can calculate dates of religious holidays (mind you - the clock is from 1380!) . BTW - the calendar is...More

Be there early if you want a seat to see the astronomical clock . Large impressive cathedral on the outside, main attraction inside is the clock.
