“Back to the Middle Ages”
Review of Jakriborg

Jakriborg
Ranked #13 of 47 things to do in Lund
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 January 2017

This little town was planned to resemble a medieval German village with its typical architecture. People live there, children play there, folks visit to cafe or the bakery -- it is real life, not just a replica. You can wander down small, winding cobblestone streets and admire the various houses: each one is different from the others drom the number of storeys down to details like the front doors.It is easily reached from Lund by train, and is also within easy bike range.

Very nice suburb, 3 min by train from Lund, or a bit longer if you decide to bike!
This place was built to look medieval, to resemble the coastal cities in the Baltics. Very beautiful for a nice promenade.

The feeling is almost surreal.The area is mainly characterized by the pointed steeply pitched roofs, the winding streets and alleyways, and the façades and color scheme evocative of cities in Denmark, Germany , rather than to the rest of Scandinavia.But somewhere it is a refreshing construction projects that deviate from the norm.Sometimes it's easy to forget that you are walking around in a pastiche.The basis for a good restaurant does not seem to be so the local supermarket may become a surrogate if you get hungry.

Some nice architectiual houses, streets and Alleys but it lacks real atmosphere. Walk the open Squares and small streets and you almost beleive that you are in the midst of historical Europé, but just - almost.

I went there to visit the Christmas faire and the medieval touch gave something special to the ambiance.
