The old blocks of Lund


Walk
about 1-3 hours
In the old parts of the city, inside what during medieval times were surrounded by a wall, you will find many old and picturesque houses preserved. Many of them are more than 100 years old. Even at the most known shopping street, Lilla Fiskaregatan , are many buildings old and beautiful. If you want to experience the old charm of Lund, the lovely houses surrounded by hollyhocks, lavender and roses in summertime, you should take a walk in those old blocks. At the page Lund, the city of roses, there are some pictures showing what you will experience.
