Sunday in Lier, Norway

Lier valley is just outside Drammen town and it is very beautiful. Sometimes when you drive through Lier and you see the farms its like going back in time, you get this peaceful feeling. The view is spectacular. At the same time Lier is know for its agriculture, everything from apples and fantastic apple juices (fresh and free from preservatives!) to Christmas trees! If you have red my blog you know that I love apples and apples juice and now you know why☺

I have taken some beautiful shots today, enjoy!

The little “hill” it is actually an old Viking tomb!

This is placed on the entrance to the church:

FROGNER CHURCH, the church was build in 1694. The first church build on this place was before year 1200, it burned down in year 1651.

This house, is just few meters from the church it could have belong to the church before.

The church and the house from a hillside.

The view from the “top” of Lier!

…and here you can see the Drammens Fjord!!

  1. Wow, it’s stunning and really does look like the Leer I know in Michigan. My ancestors settled there from Norway. The landscape reminded them so much of the Lier Valley in Norway that they named the town Leer (different spelling, as you can see). My family still owns property there and have a farm still in the family that’s over 100 years old, also where my grandmother grew up. The resemblance between the Leer in Michigan and Lier Valley in Norway is crazy … looks almost identical! Thank you for posting these 🙂
