Uppsala Domkyrka, Uppsala

4.6
See the tallest cathedral in Scandinavia and admire the twin Gothic spires of Uppsala Domkyrka. Situated between Uppsala University and River Fyris, the cathedral stands nearly 122 m (400 ft) tall. You will recognize the 13th-century structure by its rose-hued exterior. Tour the site, originally designed by French architects in the French-Gothic style, and view its impressive features, including its treasury museum and chapels. Though the structure was damaged in a fire in the 18th century, the church today has been completed restored to its former glory.

  • If you ever travel to Uppsala this is a place you have to visit, one of the most beautiful cathedrals there is.  more »
  • This has been here many times and will return. Walked around the piles, and visited the Museum. Odinsborg unfortunately closed, would have been fun to eat there.

  • Incredible cathedral! The sheer size of the cathedral is impressive in itself! We were surprised with a choir performance during our visit and must say it was one of the most beautiful performances I’ve ever seen! The gift shop here is also very nice and has many cute nicknacks from Uppsala! Really enjoyed my visit here and would recommend to anyone travelling to Uppsala!
  • Stunning gothic cathedral. I was told that it is the largest in Scandinavia. Very prim and sparsely decorated on the interior in keeping with strict Lutheran tradition. The catholic cathedrals of France and Italy are better than this but is is stunning from the shear size and importance of it.
  • Stunning cathedral (the tallest of the Scandinavian countries) it is Evangelical Lutheran with concerts around the week and services.
  • Surprisingly good, the Cathedral is magnificent even when you compare with some other famous European churches.
  • Great place! Managed to see Emmanuel Swedenborg tomb and an amazing exhibition of video artist Bill Viola! I missed Linneo next time!
