  • Cool and Beautiful place. Feels like a cross between a Roman and Irish Cathedral with a Danish twist. Lots of history is evident from the well worded brochures, as well as almost springing from the stone and wood itself. The premises are also amazing and if the weather is nice do yourself a favor and take a walk down by the lake and enjoy the great nature there.
