Explore Lund Cathedral
Seven hundred thousand people visit Lund cathedral every year making it one of the most visited churches in Sweden. That is a huge number, and in fact, this number explains how impressive is this church.
This ancient gothic monument will make you go spellbound, I swear!!!
The Lund cathedral is a living example that the architects of ancient days possessed extraordinary skills than the present designers. Go down and explore the ancient altars and crypts which will take you to the crypts of Winterfell in Game of Thrones.
Dating back to 1100, Lund cathedral has a fabulous astronomical clock from 1380 and is still in perfect working condition.
Walk around the Botanical Garden
Spreading over eight hectares, the Lund botanical garden has more than 6000 species of plants. Grab a book, take a walk around and sip some coffee in the botanical garden. Or call your favorite bunch, walk around and have some chit chats at the coffee shop.
The Lund botanical garden is for the nature lovers. The greenery will relieve all your stress, and the quirky coffee shop which opens during summer will pave the way for a peaceful pause.
Marvel the art pieces of Skissernas sketch museum
Art is not my field. But, I admire the artworks and those who make it. If you are an admirer like me, then head to the Skissernas sketch museum and catch a glimpse of the creative art pieces.
Featuring two art pieces I liked personally below.
Hop on to some cosy cafes
Winter calls for coffee and the Swedish cafes are the best in providing a snuggish ambiance with some hot coffee. Just that coffee whiff, the eatables, and atmosphere will give you a homey feeling.
You will see a lot of enticing whimsical cafes in Lund which serves scrumptious eatables.
Have a picnic at Rinnebäcksravinen
Located on the western edge of Lund, Rinnebäcksravinen is the ultimate picnic spot in Lund. Words won’t do justice to this place. Have a look at the pictures by yourself.

Take a tour around the rustic streets and hop on to the quaint tiny shops. You will feel like you are teleported to the ancient years while you walk here.
Moreover, you will feel like knocking on the doors of the cute homes because they are so adorable (I felt like buying one)- don’t do it!
