Access to the underground Medieval Museum is gained through the Gattostretto Restaurant - this is an interesting museum with all information in Swedish (video in English describing the genesis and history of the church). The museum is free and I am sure it is an excellent museum for locals but, unfortunately, since I do not understand the Swedish language, I... More

Remains of them and the succeeding Drotten Church in stone were found in the 70's when digging for new building in the city center. Cemeteries around these churches were also found. Life-sized dolls wearing... More

Rather discret entrence on one the smaller town squares. Nicely restored and kept in the cellar. Very informative guide who tells it's history. Around the room there are descriptions that tells you more in pictures. A nice place If you're interested of the old Lund.

This attraction is marked Church Ruins in the local maps. It is located underground and the access is through a restaurant. There is some material (in Swedish) that explains how the old church looked like, as well as some mockups, but there is no clear indication of how the pile of stones that you see correlate with the church layout....

Drotten's church ruin is an underground museum that describes and shows models of four, now demolished, churches from the eleventh century in Lund but the sight is open unmanned for visit on you own so it require some learning to understand what it is about. The first of the churches, in chronological order, is a stave church that was built... More

A bright lifeline history pumped out in the city of Lund. A life where 600 years ago, most of the people living here in Lund were people of Denmark. But these times have brought change to the people here in Lund. Over time, traditions and cultures have been further addressed into the system. This further probe into expanding the Danish... More

Go to the Gattostretto Restaurant in Lund, Sweden. Take the elevator down to the old Viking Church. Press the button to start the Information! Now you can see what King Svein Forkbard built 1000 years earlier!
