On June 10, Lund City has guided tours of the city and there will be activities that refers to one of the most important events in the history of Lund, The battle of Lund in 1676. 8000 poor souls were killed during one day of battle between the armed forces of Sweden and Denmark.
Actors, dressed as soldiers in 17th century cavalry, will perform a cavalry chock as it was during the Battle of Lund. This will be performed in Lundagård at two occasions, 11.40 am and 2.45 pm. There will also be guided bus tours to see the places of the Battle of Lund. Unfortunately for our colleagues outside of the Nordic countries, all the guided tours is in Swedish.
