10 Things to Do in Lund That You Shouldn't Miss

Among the oldest cities in Sweden, Lund was founded in the late 10th century. The stalwart Lund Cathedral is almost as old as the settlement itself; it was built in traditional Romanesque style and contains a beautiful astronomical clock, five organs and an ancient crypt. Explore charming Jakriborg, a modern residential area that emulates a medieval town, then head to the beautiful Botanical Gardens.

Lund Cathedral

Every year more than 700,000 people visit Lund Cathedral, Swedens most visited Church. People of all ages and types are attracted here for a variety of reasons. Besides those who attend services or seek spiritual renewal, there are many tourists groups from different countries, school classes as well as visiting parties from other churches and congregations. Lund Cathedral was consecrated in 1145, and contains many well-known artifacts and features of considerable historical interest. Please don´t miss to visit the Cathedral Forum, Domkyrkoforum, a brand new modern building just south of the Cathedral. Here you can see two films about the Cathedral, drink coffee/tea, and get information.
