Lund voluntary tourist information Destination Lund offers more than online tourist information, we also are part of the International Greeter Association. Greeters are a service providing visitors to experience the city together with a local citizen, which opens up for visitors to find out more about the city. A greeter, who lives in the city, can show their hiking spots, which otherwise can be hard to find for an unfamiliar visitor. The greeter can also show things that is of special interest to the visitors, and a greet always emanates from the visitors wishes. Greets are not guided tours, but focus on small groups, up to 6 persons. Dependent on the visitors wishes, a greet is usually ongoing for 2-3 hours, all for free, it is not even allowed to tip!

Some feedback from our visitors

Loes Runneboom and Ruben Maris from the Netherlands:

We had a great tour with the luxury of having three guides for at least two or three hours. We think you were all very enthusiastic and kind. We loved all your historical knowledge, the information, details, extra information on students jokes and your personal recommendations for activities and restaurants. After the tour, Lund will forever be more than just a student town or just another city in Sweden.

Beatriz and Estefanía Moreno Amador from Spain:

Thanks a lot for this wonderful walk! My sister and I discovered loads of things about the city and learnt a lot about Swedish culture, and of course about the university students of Lund. Our greeters were very friendly and kindly, answering all our questions. Thanks to them we have a bigger knowledge about the city and the traditions from here. Also, they gave us some tips for improving our experience as visitors. You made it an enjoyable and entertaining walk! :)
