    Student Lund - a 1 day immersion

    November 30, 2019 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 0 °C

    This footprint is late. This is because on my first day in Sweden I did not just explore Lund, I became part of it, with not 1, but 2 traditional events!

    After a beautiful sun-splashed tour of Lund's university and historic streets, Joanna and I visited the jultid event at Kulturen open-air museum. We were lucky to see the Lucia procession, a Scandinavian December tradition!

    In the evening, Joanna had a gig at a Swedish uni ball with Bleckhornen, her student ensemble. I did not just watch, but JOINED IN, donning a busarong and having the time of my life playing a tambourine! 🥁 We then proceeded to have a great time at the clubhouse. This is why the footprint is late. 🤙

    Dom zu Lund

    June 12, 2019 in Sweden ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Eine Rundreise durch Südschweden ist wohl nicht komplett ohne einen Besuch in der altehrwürdigen Universitätsstadt Lund im Südwesten des Landes.

    Wir mussten uns natürlich für unseren Besuch ausgerechnet den diesjährigen Tag der Studenten aussuchen. Und so wimmelt die Stadt von betrunkenen, ausgelassen feiernden Abiturienten und Studenten, die mit ihrem Autokorso den Verkehr rund um Universität und Dom zum erliegen bringen.

    Doch wir lassen uns davon nicht abbringen, denn eben jener Dom ist das Ziel unseres Abstechers.

    Weithin sichtbar dominiert (Wortspiel beabsichtigt) das romanische Sakralbauwerk das Bild der Innenstadt.
    In seinem Inneren beherbergt der Dom einer der größten – wenn nicht sogar die größte – Krypten Skandinaviens und wir betrachten andächtig die kühn geschwungenen, hohen Säulen, die nicht nur das Dach der Krypta, sondern vor allem auch die Decke des Hauptschiffes tragen.

    Day 29 - Lund

    September 18 in Sweden ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    I had many short lifts this morning, but then a Polish took me for 400 km & I got here in time. Tonight we'll go dumpstering & socialize a little, to make it a holistic day.

    By train and bus to Horby via Lund

    March 19, 2014 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    I had booked an AirBnB stay in Horby before leaving, and the homeowner sent me detailed instructions of how to take the train from Copenhagen to Lund and catch the bus to near her house. If you've ever seen the TV series The Bridge, it is set on this road/rail bridge connecting Denmark and Southern Sweden.

    I had some time to fill in Lund, so wandered around and visited a couple of very interesting museums. The university there is world-famous, but students everywhere have a wicked sense of humor, as evidenced by what had been done to the statue of Linnaeus next to the city library.
