  • Very old cathedral in fantastic shape. The crypt with the legendary "Finn" carved in stone is very cool. Clock is beautiful and just overall a wonderful example. My wife and I just spent the week in Rome. This is much different then that but still very cool.
  • Lovely cathedral near the university. When the mass is finished you can go inside for a sightseeing (or before). Worth the attention are the clock and the crypt.
  • It's not a very spectacular building from the outside but a little more interesting from the inside. It has a famous clock but, surprisingly, when I search for Lund Cathedral in Google Maps, I see very few photos or references to the clock. When we were there, it seemed to be the focus of tourist attention. There's a nice crypt.
  • It's a must watch place in Lund...One of the oldest
  • A well-preserved historical and religious monument. Lund Cathedral is a lovely Romanesque church dating from the 11th century and still a focal point of everyday life in modern-day Lund. It is accessible for free and visitors should check the cathedral's web site beforehand so as not to miss the chiming of the astronomical clock with its moving characters, a piece of mechanical marvel dating to the 15th century. It normally chimes twice a day, and the "show" is briefly introduced by a cleric, albeit only in Swedish.
