For almost 800 years people have been coming to worship and pray at Linköping Cathedral. Work on the Cathedral was started in 1230, with the main building works being completed in 1520. The belfry and the west façade were added in 1885. Linköping Cathedral is the most impressive and expensive Swedish church building of the Middle Ages. Within the church you can see evidence of almost 800 years in which master craftsmen have expressed their faith in wood and stone

I love visiting the cathedral. It is amazing how free you are to walk around and experience what there is to see. Often there is someone inside playing the organ, which is absolutely amazing.

Walked in during the middle of Sunday afternoon and was very happy to be treated by the rehearsal for a Bach oratorium the same evening. Even without that: Vaux le voyage!
