We arrived right as the clock was ready to start 😉 but right after that they were going to have a service so everyone had to leave or stay and the people we were with wanted to leave ☹️

Interesting if you're in the city and like cathedrals in general otherwise there isn't much to see there.

While it is over 1000 years old there is not much to see here. The clock is quite interesting and the outside is impressive but nothing else is. It is free and if you are in Lund worth a quick glance but otherwise move on.

This is the pride and joy of all the townspeople. We love our cathedral! I would suggest a tour guide for your first visit, to get all the info, but the absid and the crypt should never be missed.

at 12 and 15 the magnificent clock plays. I happened to witness a mass with the organ playing. It was a great and inspiring happening although I don't understand Swedish. The church is beautiful and the craftwork at the quire is impressive.

A must visit. We were there when the clock activated and the characters were moving. Twice a day the clock does the little show.

This is a well maintained medieval cathedral. The clock is unusual and chimes twice a day. There is a person who explains the clock.

The cathedral is freely accessible and easy to reach. Wonderful interior with interesting sights. The astronomical clock is the main attraction in this cathedral, try to watch it at noon, when it 'rings' and the figures in the clock move around. Fun to see. The...More
