Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Sweden  /  Skane County  /  Lund  /  Lunds domkyrka
The most visited church in Sweden, Lunds domkyrka represents an excellent example of Romanesque architecture with many historical features. The cathedral was founded in 1080 in Lund, a significant religious and cultural city during the Middle Ages. Today over 700,000 people visit the church each year, for both worship and general tours. Enter the building to view several interesting features in its interior, including the cathedral's choir stalls and Gothic altarpiece dating back to the 14th century. Look for the centuries-old tower bells; one was created in 1513. Put Lunds domkyrka into our Lund online vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Lund was discovered real EU. The Cathedral is impressive indeed. But the Center is very nice. And even the peripheral neighborhoods are largely made up of pretty villas. A beautiful University City!

  • This cathedral is really gorgeous. If you are able to make it in time to watch the clock chime, then do so! There usually will be someone there explaining the clock and how it works, as well as all th...  more »

  • 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.

Where to stay in Lund

The historical university town of Lund, with its charming buildings and cobblestone streets, generally appeals to travelers with moderate to upscale budgets. Here you'll find a number of mid-range hotels as well as a couple upscale hotels, the closer to the city center the better. There are scant hostels and no guesthouses or bed and breakfasts.
