Härkeberga church is filled with paintings by famous medieval church painter Albertus Pictor. Not an inch is empty, everywhere there are pictures of biblical figures, the essence of folk beliefs, exotic animals and many other things.
Albertus Pictor was a prominent artist with great ability to give his characters life. All are dressed in 15th century costumes and have individual features - it is said that he often used villagers as models for his paintings. Those who should be nasty he provided with beards and crooked noses! Among all the nice pictures, for example, Jona and the whale fish can be mentioned, where Jona of fearlessly dives into the water.
An audio guide in several languages gives you guidance on the pictures. Since the paintings have never been overpainted, they are in very good condition with strong colors, although some pigments have changed. For example, red has become black over time.
Härkeberga Church is a world-class attraction.
