“Worth a guided tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

With a guide the cathedral came alive with stories from the past. The clock and the crypt with the giant Finn incorporated into a pillar was well worth the visit

“A must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is a great example of 19th century restoration architecture. Skip the new (2011) Cathedral Forum, but make sure to get a little sun along the southern wall.

“A grand church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

The cathedral is very prominent in the small university town, very austere, impressive. It was nice to be there without a crowd ( it was Thursday afternoon). We had a guide, and though I would have enjoyed the visit even without one, it was so much more interesting to hear all the interesting details explained. Do not miss the astronomic clock!
