Good food, new discoveries, art and lots of history. Here are our best tips on what to discover in Lund.

The Botanical gardens

A lovely green oasis in the middle of Lund. The Botanical gardens are a place for both inquiring minds and recreation seekers. Visit the gardens, greenhouses, shop and café.

From 2024 onwards, the greenhouses will be renovated and closed indefinitely.

See the 10,000 year old Scanian auroch (extinct ox). Learn about Scandinavia's largest ever robbery, and do not miss the exciting curiosity cabinet. Everything can be found in Sweden's second largest archaeological museum.

Adventurous slides for the daring, jungle pools for the little ones and exercise courses for the energetic, all in one of Scania's most modern water parks.

One of the world's first open-air museums covers two blocks in the middle of Lund. Step into the buildings and experience life in the city and in the country, from the Middle Ages up to the 1930s. Also enjoy the museum's exhibitions and do not miss shopping in the old grocery store, Hökeriet.

What happens in the body when we breathe? Is your skin an organ? How does an ultrasound work? The museum tells an interactive story about the human body - the growing, healing, ageing, historic, fascinating body!

Almost 1,000 years old, with many exciting stories inside and outside the walls, the Cathedral is a welcoming place. Gaze south over the Domkyrkoplan and Domkyrkoforum, which are modern contrasts to the Cathedral.

Every year, Lunds konsthall (art gallery) unveils new regional and international exhibits by established and new artists. The art gallery also offers guided tours, lectures and creative workshops in conjunction with the exhibitions.

Lunds Saluhall, in the centre of Lund, has been a food tradition since 1909. Sit down at a table among one of the food hall's many restaurants, or buy a piece of Scania to take home. Choose from the cheese counter, fish counter or chocolate counter.

A unique museum with a large collection of sketches and models of international and Swedish public art. From Henri Matisse and Sonia Delaunay to the twenty-first century's Carolina Falkholt, this is where modern and contemporary art meet.

In Lund's centre for science, young and old can meet science and research up close. Vattenhallen is a science centre filled with experiences and experiments, with strong ties to Lund University and the surrounding research world.
