Lund Cathedral is a very striking building both inside and out. It is large enough to seem dominating. Inside it is attractively simple and there is a real feeling of peace and serenity. There is an astronomical clock which is of interest. We got a...More

One of the tallest church I have ever seen. Was not able to look inside as the church as it close. Great location in the heart of the city and there is a nearby architectural scenery.

To listen to music or just sit quiet and meditate is a wonderful experience. I often go there just to feel the serenity of history and religion. Every second year there is a choir festival in October. That is a magic week.

The Cathedral is central to the history of Lund and is therefore definitely something you should visit if you want to get a feel of the city. The architecture inside is beautiful! Look out for the astronomical clock when you go in!

I thought it was a spectacular church with a lovely clock to watch and the giant to see in the basement, plus lovely windows and carved stalls. It was well worth a visit!

Beautiful! The crypt was pretty neat and the clock was absolutely fascinating! Time your visit so you see the clock in action...

I recommend stopping here - the clock is just a delight (huge perpetual calendar and figures that move with the hour), the crypt was fun to walk around in.

The astronomic clock is really worth the trip. The giant Finn in the basement trying to rock the church to rubble is surprisingly small to be a giant
