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

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

“Sober, quiet, beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

I like this cathedral very much. It is huge! And the most iconic building in Linköping, if you ask me.

It is normally almost empty, which makes it nice to visit. It is very sober (cf. catholic churches) and with good taste.

You feel like an insect in such an enormous building, but that is normally the intention with churches, right?

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Loved the architecture and history. Disliked the fact that on duty info. Clerk was not that attentive in welcoming visitors or even saying goodbye or thanking folks for coming! It was not until we left that we discovered an info sheet regarding the recommended sequence of touring the cathedral. Tourists, pray for her hospitality skills!
