  • After our walk through the Vidar Grove we came out at the Catholic Church. From the park you can see a round tower and a square building. The church is in coarse-cut stones and has a copper roof. It is a young church from 1987. A beautiful glass mosaic is found at the large, heavy entrance door. Nice that the church is open and you should go in. A small church room down bright furniture and beautiful glass mosaics, altarboard in glass. A good experience.

  • The desing and the glass paintings were beautiful, a place to sit down and let your thoughs fly away. The acoustics were great and it was tested by us singing a hymn before we left.  more »
