Vinberg Church

Vinberg was a parish just east of the town of Falkenberg in the county of Halland. Today it has joined the parish of Ljungby and forms Vinberg-Ljungby Parish.

The church in Vinberg was finished in 1899 and is built in new gothic style. It replaced an older church that had become too small for the congregation to gather in. The old church had its location just north east of the current one, and had been standing there since the 12th century.

The architect was Adrian Pettersson and the church is considered his finest building. Both the exterior and interior is rich in decorations.

The area has much more than a beautiful church to offer. But I will save those pictures and stories for another day.
