In the middle of Bjäre, in the village of Svenstad, Birgit Nilsson's family farm is beautifully nestled between hills and pastures. Here, La Nilsson grew up and worked on the family's farm while she dreamed of a future in the world of singing.
The farm is today a museum, according to Birgit's wishes, where memories from childhood and the incomparable opera career are preserved.
Birgit's childhood home is shown in pristine condition in the company of a guide, who tells about growing up and the path to music. Place in viewing can be pre-booked. Limited accessibility to the dwelling house.

Celebrate Norrviken's gardens' 100 years with inspiration from the Renaissance
This year it is a hundred years since Norrviken's gardens opened to visitors. It is celebrated in the sign of the Renaissance in the manner of Norrviken when you let the richness of ideas of the era and open mind permeate the gardens, art, music, food and experiences.
The park's founder and visionary Rudolf Abelin opened Norrviken for the first time on 15 May 1920 for visitors. 100 years later, Norrviken's gardens are facing another new era. New 100 years will begin and the past will be remembered. The 2020 theme at Norrviken is therefore inspired by the Renaissance. A time when the desire to develop, discover and innovate was at the center. The landscaped gardens were created, integrated with the buildings and lavish flower arrangements were created.
The birth of Venus inspires
Norrviken draws its tonality and inspiration from the painting Birth of Venus current selection of plants, images, colors and music. In the Baroque Garden, the visitor passes through The gallery on its way to Villa Abelin. Here, in a natural setting, famous works by the great masters of the Renaissance such as Botticielli, Da Vinci and Michelangelo are presented. Of the park's style gardens, the Renaissance garden is in focus with its tightly cut forms of boxwood and tall beech hedges. The Water Garden also plays an important role as part of the Renaissance theme. The colors of spring are in white, gold and pink. Beautiful tones with clear
connection to the renaissance is found in lots of bulbous plants and flowering lilies that are later replaced by summer flowers and perennials in a mighty bloom well into autumn.

The weaver in Båstad weaves linen. A distinction is made between full linen and half linen. This means that we only use clean linen. Also in the warp. It gives a luster that shines. And a strength that stands up. We have been weaving whole linen since the forties and we do it in Sweden.
Then we have full control over the quality and can also weave to order. We care about the craft and the tradition. One of our designs - David's harp - is from the 1600th century. If you want to know more, sign up for a guided tour below.
We really love our area and are constantly working to spread how amazing we think it is. Most important of all are you who visit us and therefore we humbly ask for help to spread the message. Become an ambassador for the Bjäre Peninsula and share the page with the buttons below.
