Dominating the area and sitting just above the town, the cathedral is most impressive inside and out. Exceptionally high ceilings, huge concrete pillars, patterned ceiling, stained glass, chandeliers, crypts and artefacts - a lot to take in. Certainly captures your attention and worth a visit.

Stunning architecture and impressive interior with beautiful paintings, sculptures and stained glass. We did a guided tour in English which was very informative; even though we are not religious it was worthwhile from a historical perspective. I think the guided tours only run in the summer though. Visiting the cathedral was free, but if you want to see the treasury... More

If you visit Uppsala no doubt you should visit the Cathedral. It's high two towers are seen from the palace hill and a nice walk downhill will lead you to the old town and the cathedral square. Built of red bricks as many important buildings in Scandinavia. Inside an impressive structure and high ornamented ceiling only surpassed by the beautiful... More

From a non believer point of view it was an interesting way to learn a little bit about Uppsala and Sweden. Beautiful, huge architecture, worth the visit if that is your cup of tea.

I compare this Cathedral with the Cathedral in Antwerp (Belgium) and the one in York (UK). I was impressed by both of them and I was certainly impressed by this one in Uppsala. It is certainly worth a visit, and if possible go also in one of the towers.

First thing my wife said (she's Catholic) was that this was a Catholic cathedral. I told her that Sweden was a Lutheran country (for the most part). She said it had much of the Catholic iconography. So we asked about it and true enough, it WAS a Catholic cathedral until the reformation and King Gustav Vasa having a rather heading... More

The size of the Cathedral is indeed impressive. The interior is very nice, although it cannot compare with the (much older) cathedrals in central and western Europe. You will pass by anyway when strolling through Uppsala's old town, so why not make a stop?

If you visit Uppsala, the Catheadral is a must see. Very impressive and beauty full. Also take the chance to enter the one of the towers if opened.

Very impressive Cathedral, particularly on the interior. The exterior is also massive, but the finishes are from different styles and era, mainly of brick. Very historic building and many associations with Scandinavian royalty.

Gorgeous cathedral with stained glass, paintings, carvings, statues and crypts including Linnaeus, bishops and some Swedish royalty. Well worth the time to explore.
