  • Drottens Church is a medieval church in Central Lund, who later became a museum. Drottens Church was built probably during 1050 century and demolished in the course of the Reformation. Over the old site utlades Street Kattesund. In connection with excavations at Kattesund in the 1970s and 80s were found the ruins. Even an older stave church was found in the same place. At the excavations also found traces of an older stave church in wood. It is believed to have been built by the Danish King Svend Tveskæg around the year 990. This makes the stave church to Lund and Scania's oldest church. It was decided that the stones would have the remain and be made into an underground museum and a House was to be built on top. The Museum was inaugurated on 11 september 1987.

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. Look to Lund's neighboring rival, Uppsala, for more budget-friendly options.
