Otroligt vacker kyrka med riktigt bra gudstjänster. Begravningsplatsen är också mycket fin där den kända Fredrika Bremer med familj vilar. Kan varmt rekommendera att besöka kyrkan och dess omgivning när det väl är öppet hus. Då kyrkan ligger en bit från vägen och nära intill skogen så blir omgivningen stillsam och tilltalande.

Underbar kyrka med FANTASTISK musik och sång i en Minnesstund omkring nära och kära genom Halldoffs Begravningsbyrå

A beautiful church in a very scenic location. It's tilted tower is famous and, of course, has a charming story. But this is a perfect little church and worth anyone's time to stop and visit!

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
