Hospital room with a view. Kalnes in Norway

Should you spend some days in a hospital - I can for sure recommend the regional Hospital Kalnes outside of Sapsborg in Norway.

Spacious single rooms with a view to the water and forest landscape in the back and then the birds making the only sounds you can hear.
