Owner description: 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

This Cathedral is something else. It has often art exibitions in house, many masses during the day and lots of Concerts of large classical masterpieces by the great masters. There is an art one have to see when visiting, it is to the left, a home less man laying near the wall.

It's a must-see attraction in Linkoping. It's a stunning, beautiful architecture. You can always find something shining even you've been there before.

It is a beautiful Gothic church in the town centre, worth visiting, if you have a few spare minutes.

This cathedral, Linkopings Domkyrka or Linkoping Cathedral, is immense, impressive, beautiful and awe inspiring. The present structure is about 800 years old, but an earlier church stood on the site in 1120.

Nice church with very service-minded staff and beautiful art work to buy. There was a small art exhibition as well at the time. There was nothing to dislike.

Pleasant walk around the cathedral. It's a beautiful, yet plain church steeped in history. Talk a stroll through the cathedral, the adjoining castle and museum beside heading down to the main town square for a spot of lunch and some people-watching.

A lot of history and so well looked after. Plenty to do in and around the cathedral. Did not really have enough time on our visit.
