This thread is about my visits to Lund this summer. Lund is the 3rd largest city in Skåne and Sweden’s most important university city. It is more than 1000 years old and was once one of Sweden’s largest cities. In this thread I have visited Kulturen 3 times, and residential areas and a highrise district.

Kulturen, “the Culture”, is a kind of museum in the city center, that consist of 2 large blocks with about 20 very old, but wellpreserved houses from different centuries, some of them containing museums and exhibitions, and the buildings of Kulturen are very interesting architecturally. Many events and exhibitions are going on at Kulturen, that was founded in 1882, but most of the buildings are much older, and many of them have been rebuilt or moved to Kulturen from other places.

Kulturkvadraten is the name of quarters around Kulturen and the cathedral, with buildings from as early as the late 900s.


Vita huset, white house, is the modern main building and museum of Kulturen.


Undergången, the underground path that connects Kulturen’s both quarters.




A police helicopter and several police buses could be seen all over the city this day, because the „occoupation festival“ was taking place, an event where youngsters protest against the lack of apartments in Lund.




Dekanhuset, a former residential building. It was built in the 1200s, but was moved to Kulturenin 1908.


Ystadshuset, removed from Ystad.


It is allowed to go inside most of the historic buildings of Kulturen. The interiors are very wellkept.






Blekingegården and Bosmålatorpet.






Blekingegården from the mid 1700s, but rebuilt in 1892.






A small museum about the history of children, in 2 small houses.










A miniature of Kulturen, in the white house.


Veteran cars exhitition at Kulturen, June 6th, the national day 2009:










Bosebo Kyrka again.


An old Bentley in front of Bokkulturen, Borgarhuset and Thomanderska gården.

Blekingegården.


Bosebo Gamla Kyrka, an old wood church from 1652.










Chinese ornamnents in a permanent exhibition in one of the oldhouses.


I climbed the firestairs just to take this pictue!

Medieval festival at Kulturen, June 13th 2009:


People were dressed up like medieval people and there were stands and events going on, it was really nice.






Me, my friends and Thomanderska gården mirroring in the crystal ball.

Great pictures of a great city! I remember a street with some old villas generally housing various institutes pf the Faculty of Humanities of Lund University. I would love to see some pictures from there if you have any. Autumn colours were at their most beautiful when I was there sp that may have enhanced the impression, but it would be great to see if they were as mice as I remember them. :)

@ringil Honestly I don't know actually, it is just a feeling I got...
@ramblersen
May be these houses looks like the ones you meant. But I don't think it is the same.
