Lund Cathedral, Lund, Skane County
You can visit Lund Cathedral, which was consecrated in 1145, although there has been a cathedral on this site since the 1080s. The astronomical clock was installed around 1424. The towers of Lund Cathedral stand 55 meters or 177ft tall, and when the cathedral was built, they could be seen from anywhere in the surrounding countryside. The oldest of the bells dates back to 1513. The cathedral has five organs, the largest of which was built between 1932 and 1934 by the Danish company, 'Marcussen & Søn'. In 2016 Pope Francis visited the Cathedral to mark the 499th anniversary of the Reformation. This option is included in your excursion ticket.
You can also see Lund University, which traces its roots back to 1425, when Franciscan monks established the Studium Generale, near Lund Cathedral.

In Lundagård you can find the Lund University Historical Museum. The cost of the entrance fee to this museum is not included in your excursion ticket.
Behind Lundagård is Kulturen, Sweden's second oldest open air museum. In Kulturen are 30 old buildings from previous centuries.

Some of Kulturen's buildings have been moved here from other sites in Sweden, while others are on the same site where they were originally built. Kulturen opened in 1892. There are buildings, or the remains of buildings from the Middle Ages to the 1930s. The entrance fee for this museum is not included in your tour ticket.
Lund is a great place to have lunch, as there are lots of little restaurants serving tasty food, and many have special offers at lunchtime, or fixed-price menus. A good place to go, with a large selection of places to eat is Martens Torget. There you can find Saluhallen, which was built in 1909 and is an indoor market containing a wide variety of restaurants and cafes, including Italian, Persian and Japanese food. If you fancy something simpler, try the Swedish coffee house chain Expresso House, which started in Lund in 1996. They have some very nice pastries. If you fancy some cholesterol, go to another great Swedish chain - Max. They sell tasty fast food burgers and were founded in Sweden in 1968. Most places in Sweden take card payment, but it might be a good idea to get yourself around 200 Swedish Kronor in cash, just in case.

Oresund Bridge, Malmo, Skane County
Finally from Copenhagen to Malmø across the impressive Øresund Bridge.Pass By:
Jakriborg, Lund, Skane County
Jakriborg's architectural style has a variety of intricate maze-like streets and passageways. Jakriborg is not connected to traditional styles of other, more northern, parts of Scandinavia, nor with the functionalism that has been dominant in most of Europe for much of the 20th century. Instead, the style is inspired by pre-industrial town architecture found in the coastal region of the southern Baltic and the North Sea between Flanders and Tallinn, of which the old Hansa City of Lübeck is the best known exampleHighlights
