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 « less

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.

We were so lucky to be there for a choir practice, exceptional experience with the beautiful singing whilst we were welcomed to walk and explore and learn from a very stunning and old church.

A visit to the Linköping cathedral is a walk through history. It is especially interesting after visiting the nearby castle and cathedral museum. Some interesting contemporary art.

Founded in the 12th century but what makes it unique, is the the fact it is NOT catholic. Many conserts are also given here.

I'm not a religious person, but there was something very special about this cathedral. I spent about an hour and a half inside and out wandering the grounds. Make sure you look at the glass etching.

Linköping Sweden doesn't boast an excess in tourist attractions, but what it does offer is well worth seeing, particularly Linköping Cathedral, the town's finest. Entry is free. It doesn't draw large crowds so you can often enjoy the peace and beauty of the church without a single other visitor. I enjoyed it so much, I went back to see it... More

This is incredibly well preserved in a quiet park - it is worth taking time to visit. Look out for the dressing up box for any children wanting to be a bishop.

Unusual and tranquil place to look around. No crowds when we visited. Would have been good to have more of the information printed in English
