Lund Things to Do

  • Lund Cathedral

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Lund's Domkyrka (Cathedral) is one of the oldest and finest Romanesque churches in Sweden, and is a must see in Lund! The present building dates from the 12th century, the time when Lund played an important role in Denmark's history - for instance was King Valdemar II crowned here in 1202. The cathedral is located in the city centre, and is easy to...

  • Lund University

    Lund University was founded back in 1666, making it the second-oldest university on Swedish ground today. The university was originally named Academia Carolina, but in the late 19th century, the name was changed to Lund University. Today, it is one of northern Europe's most prestigious universities and one of Scandinavia's largest institutions for...

  • Kulturen

    As far as Swedish museums go, you can't find many that are better than Kulturen. The world´s second-oldest open-air museum, the collections fill two blocks and include around 40 historic buildings. There is also an area for exhibitions, which when I was there was taken up by a display of underwear from the 17th century to modern designer items...

  • Botaniska trädgården and parks

    There has been a botanical garden in Lund since the late 1600s, but the present botanical garden – almost in the centre of town – is from the 1860s. The garden covers eight hectares and has more than 7,000 species of plants. It is a very tranquil place filled with greenhouses, small ponds, and numerous flower beds with beautiful flowers and plants....

  • Dalby Söderskog National Park

    Sweden's southernmost national park is only little, but to someone from further north, it is still exotic. It is mainly famous for its beech forest which is hardly a unique scenery in continental Europe, but quite rare in Scandinavia. You can stroll along the paths, beginning by this parking place with its pretty stone wall. Should you be a real...

  • Castles

    One thing I loved about southern Sweden or Skane are the many little castles or slotts scattered throughout the countryside. This castle was not far from where I stayed in the town of Barnstensvagen. We found this castle in the middle of rolling hills and fields of peas.

  • Mårtenstorget/Mårtens square

    On a nice day you'll enjoy strolling around Marten's Square and looking at the kiosks selling food and various merchandise. Then have a seat at one of the cafes surrounding the square and enjoy a refreshing drink while you watch the people go by.

    more
  • Konsthallen

    The Lund Konsthallen is a small museum in the center of Lund. This museum doesn't have a permanent exhibition so there is always something new to see. The exhibitions sometimes even change the whole outlook of the museum. It's worth a quick visit and best of all it's Free too.

  • Rune stones

    These stones did not stand here (Lundagård, near the university) originally, but in various places around the county. It is still nice to be able to see them here as many stones have been smashed up by farmers by mistake as they are often found in agricultural areas. Most stones here are from Christian times although there are earlier ones in...

  • Almost Latin

    I know that, for the Swedish, we Latins, are too noisy and agitated. Easy to confirm when, in Sweden we feel like walking in a cemetery and not in a city. Lund was the exception, with people strolling and talking in its beautiful narrow streets. And we loved Lund.

  • Basilika

    The interior was trendy, and we were surprised that the prices weren't exorbitant as we had expected. The food was definitely wirth the money! 385 kroner for 3 dishes and a glass of wine. (By Scandinavian standards, that's a reasonable price for a nice meal) NB: Don't go there for the nightclub, it's expensive and it has a bad atmosphere. The...

  • BULJONG – SOUP MAKES YOUR DAY!

    Buljong is a small soup spot on Östra Mårtengatan, close to Mårtenstorget in the city centre of Lund.It is a lovely place, which serves a small, weekly changing menu of soups for around 60 SEK. Sourdough bread, dips and a very friendly service included! You can either buy a soup to go or eat it there, while sitting at the counter in the window.Very...

  • Watch the world go by

    We chose this place on the main square to grab a coffee and relax but succumbed to the soup of the day as it looked great. The staff were also great. The potato & french bean soup came with rocket on the side, breadsticks wrapped in parma ham and a basket of bread. I broke my dietary rules as it all looked too good to miss. Only minor fault was...

  • Trendy well cooked food

    Modern, fresh menu. Comfy chairs and sofas where you can see the chefs working. On the upper level the sound level is more decent for conversations. Thursday-Saturday lower level "converts" to something inbetween a bar and a night club.

  • Salsa in Mejeriet

    Salsa is not necessarily the first thing that comes to your mind when thinking of a nordic country like Sweden. In fact, the Salsa scene here is quite big and there seems to be a huge interest in Latin American dances.On my blog i share some of my experiences and photos of Salsa in Lund and the...

  • Fitba & fillies

    Having been out in Malmo on the previous night and found it to be quite quiet on a school night we decided to head to Lund for the 3rd time to see how hard the students partied. This place was packed out and it was doing a good job of showing as many Champions League games as it could although the Barca game was the biggest draw. The bar staff were...

  • Late night beers

    I was given directions to this place on the market square as it was open past midnight on a weekday. There is a tented area at the front for the smokers and we'd a good night in there, staggering out at 2am to get a taxi home.

  • On bike

    Being a small town, the fastest and nicest way to get around is cycling, and indeed you will see a big lot of them everywhere, even to the point that the bike traffic is heavier than the car traffic here! Don't worry if you don't own a bike here, you can always rent it directly at the train station, from Tommy Olsson at Lundahoj (there's the...

  • Childrens' Heaven

    This belongs to one of the best and biggest toy shops I know in Sweden which is why I have to mention it. There aren't many things lacking - great place to take the children on a rainy day! They also sell incredibly cheap pick n' mix sweets.

  • Four legged Flyinge

    Say Flyinge to any horse loving Swede and you will get a reaction. State stud for the Swedish warmblood, there has been a state stud here since 1661 but horses have been bred here much longer as it was founded by the Danish Bishop Absalon who also founded Copenhagen. Today, young Swedes get an equestrian university education here. People also come...

    In a newspaper poll, Lund's citizens were asked what they lacked most about their nice city and a vast majority said "the sea". Lomma is only ten minutes away by bus and is Lund's closest seaside place. With good beaches, this otherwise quite sleepy place sees lots of swimmers and campers summertime and makes a good place for a picnic on a sunny...

  • Hollyhocks

    Lund is a quaint little university town. I went in July which is the time when all the students have left for home and vacation. The town was very quiet and a pleasure to walk through. Streets are gently curved and it is an easy walk through the different squares in town. I loved all the hollyhocks which people planted outside their doors and...

    Both student nations and student unions pride themselves on a varied and affordable choice of activities ? concerts, dances, dinners, etc. The city of Lund (and the municipality) also has a great deal to offer outside the sphere of students.
