  • ... I have seen nicer cathedrals But it is central and in a park Had a nice choir for morning service  more »
  • Fantastic building always worth a visit. Free admission But you swish a gift. As thanks for the look. Don't miss to go down the krypton and read on the headstones. One of my favorites is where they filled in the man's death but and prepared for the wife, but when it was time for her so missed it to write in it so it says to be shiny spaces in the text after her name. The giant Finn in Källarennska of course is seen of course and how the light reflected in the Fösternischerna. Today, Youth Choir sang beautifully in the church room.

  • The Dome in Lund, several churches in one. Here you find the sacred, the historical and the peaceful. If you can, take use of the brilliant guides. Otherwise, stroll on your own using a booklet or digital guides. Don't miss out the astronomical clock that turns and chimes twice a day, noon and 3 pm. There is mass or prayers every day. Daily free access!
  • Cute little spot to view the astronomical clock which plays at noon and 3 PM and to view the crypt with it go as its frozen for all time to the pillars. Not as elaborate as some other churches of the same era but the a quaint addition to z quaint town.
