This cathedral was my favorite that I visiting in Sweden. It has an awesome spirit about it- it feels friendly and warm, like the rest of Lund. It also houses an awesome medieval astronomical clock that is one of two (I think two- maybe three)...More

This beautiful cathedral is close to City Centre. More than 200 years old, it houses some beautiful things like a huge astronomical clock.

Fine, romanesque facade carvings, a great, unified space, a crypt with fine columns and a late Gothic astronomical clock; this is a gem. In addition there is no admission fee, and the opening hours are generous even in Winter. What’s there not to love?

It's located in the very centrum of the city so don't miss it. If you don't like, you just leave and find a cafe or bar 1 literal minute away.
