Lund Cathedral is a lovely Romanesque church dating from the 11th century and still a focal point of everyday life in modern-day Lund. It is accessible for free and visitors should check the cathedral's web site beforehand so as not to miss the chiming of the astronomical clock with its moving characters, a piece of mechanical marvel dating to the...

We spent the day in Lund and the Cathedral was our first stop as it opened earlier than other attractions. It is a lovely peaceful building and just being able to walk around inside was a pleasure. The astrological clock was amazing and had me fascinated

This is a must visit structure in Lund. You will find history and religiosity entwined together for the people of Sweden and Lund in particular. It is very near to the Lunch City Hall and shopping area. I stayed nearby to this place and attended one service. Their 11:00am Sunday Communion Service is very nice. You can feel of God's... More

Architecturally incredible. If you go, don't forget to visit the crypt to see the "giant," which really doesn't look so "giant."

Very nice cathedral, if you are in Lund you can't miss it. Beautiful Romanesque architecture and the astronomical clock inside is truly beautiful.

I'm sure the church was good for impressing local peasants after their old violent and pagan ways had been banned ... but Romanesque cathedrals are SO 12'th century. The locals doesn't appear to have afforded much of an upgrade since those days either. It's quite grey and could do with a bit of paint. The tower thingies look plain silly... More

This grand old lady is more than 1000 years old. The first notice about it is from 1080. Do the math. This church has been the place for meetings, gossip and infatuations under a long, long time. Even as a little child you could find amusement in the sculptures and ornaments. And it is still going strong. It could probably... More

Read up (museum next door) before visiting the building. I have been many times and always enjoy the time there especially when the astronomical clock is working.

Imposing cathedral, specially on the outside. The inside is quite modern and spacious. Don't miss the beautiful astronomical clock, that still works!
