We visited the Cathedral on Good Friday whilst staying in Vaxjo. Outside, the Cathedarl was covered in scaffolding so we couldn't see a lot of the front. Inside, the Cathedral is fairly plain but at the same time attractive, too.There was a choir rehearsal taking place in the morning and the acoustics were very good. The male and female choir...

We have attended a couple services at this church and it is a beautiful church with a well organized service. Below is a view of the church a block away with glasswork that resembles work at the alter of the church.

Lovely to see a Lutheran cathedral after seeing so many Catholic ones in southern Europe. This one had great contemporary arts projects throughout it, with secular themes about the earth, environment, and peace. Very nice place.

Off course you would expect fine glass things in Southern Smaaland´s, and that´s you get. Definitely worthwhile if in the neighborhood.

An impressing building with minimalistic interior and initially build nearly thousand years ago, burnt and renovated several times.

There was not a lot of information in English, but we gathered that this beautiful cathedral has been modernized over the years. It dominates the skyline with its graceful twin towers. Inside, it feels light and airy. The main altar is beautifully made of glass, and there are other glass mosaics and a glass globe. The cathedral is in active... More

Lovely building, amazing interior, worth seeing on a visit to vaxjo... There is a coffee shop around the corner quiet and lovely view surrounding it. Quiet church . On the downside, not much tourist information about it.

As befits a big (really big) public building in this part of Sweden, art glass is everywhere. Don't miss the Tree of Life -- even if you don't light a candle (which is such a Roman Catholic "thing" in a Lutheran cathedral!).

It was 31st May and was last day in Sweden. We had train to Copenhagen in the afternoon. So we decided to explore the near by places. After brunch we explored near by places. Vaxjo cathedral was near by but unfortunately there was prayer going on, so couldn't enter inside. But such a nice small city.
