The Karen Blixen Museum

A historic home, bird sanctuary, park, and museum all in one, located in the house of writer and Nobel Prize finalist Baroness Karen Blixen (in the US and UK, Isak Dinesen), known especially for "Out of Africa" and "Seven Gothic Tales". The museum not only maintains the 17th century house, Blixen's furnishings, and the park, but regularly hosts Exhibitions related to Blixen's life and work in Kenya and Denmark. Recent Exhibitions have included an exhibition "HER" by internationally acclaimed artist Candice Breitz about Meryl Streep's career.

This was an added bonus as we travelled down the coast line to Copenhagen. Nice welcome and helpful information by the lady who lets you in to the main house. You are allowed in at different times but we went in on our own and were able to ask lots of questions. The story is interesting even if you haven't read a lot about Karen Blixen - there is an introductory film. The house is lovely and the Gardens are pretty too. Opposite a very attractive harbour and on the main road with a small amount of parking.

Arboretet

Worth a walk if you are in the area. Very well kept and with large variety of plants and trees. Grab a map at the entrance close to the cemetery. Thereby you will be sure not to loose your bearings :-)

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art collection focuses on contemporary works from 1945 to the present. Works by Pablo Picasso, Jean Dubuffet and Louise Bourgeois are part of the permanent exhibition at this white villa named Louise, after the first (and second and third) wife of the man who commissioned the building.

Although it isn't cheap to get into this museum, it is well worth the expenditure! A great gift shop, amazing views of the ocean both from the Gardens and from inside the museum, amazing special Exhibitions and permanent collections ... I was blissed out the entire time we were there. Only downside: the crowds! They're open late on the weekdays, and you might think of coming around four o'clock one day that they're open then. We're fairly used to the crowds at tourist sights, but it was indeed packed!

Indoor Playground

Reviewed By Solmer - Soenderborg, Denmark

Jeg var på besøg med min femårige datter en lørdag formiddag. Legelandet er stort og spændende, og der er udfordringer nok til mange timers leg. Sværhedsgraden varierer fint i de forskellige afdelinger, og selv far kan komme en tur ned af rutsjebanen. En ting der slog mig hvor lidt engagement der var fra personalet. Det virkede ikke som om de er trænet i at de sælger en oplevelse. Min datter ville selv betale for sin Slush Ice. Pigen i bare virkede overrasket og sagde: Nå men det bliver 39 kr. Hun henvendte sig ikke til min datter, men sagde det bare ud i luften. Det var ikke noget der ødelagde vores tur i legelandet, jeg undrede mig bare over at pigerne i baren ikke er mere imødekommende.

Nivaagaards Malerisamling

Reviewed By Wub67 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This is a small museum with what seems a rich collection of Dutch golden age paintings. The number of paintings is small and off the best quality. With the exception of the Rembrandt painting. The Exhibitions get the most room so check if they're to your liking.
The entrance fee is rather high for such a small museum. It is located within walking distance from the train station.

Vedbaek Havn

Reviewed By Richard S - Scottsdale, Arizona

Our Danish friends who live in Rungsted took us on a coastal tour this past September 2016. The day was a beautiful summer like day. Everyone was out. Some were swimming. What we saw from our trip from Rungsted via Vedbaek and on to Copenhagen was fantastic and a much different image than the city of Copenhagen. Expensive homes on one side and the shore on the other side on the coastal road. This little area was nice little sopt. We had no refreshments as we just had lunch at No 22 in Rungsted.

Jaegerborg Dyrehave

Reviewed By Tinde_K - Moscow, Russia

This place is apparently very popular amongst locals. We visited it because it's inscribed as a UNESCO world heritage site "Royal par force hunting grounds". This one includes a small castle, a golf course and deer heard roaming around freely. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and it made for a beautiful walk. Wonderful place, we really enjoyed it. Arrived by car, had no problems parking.

Gammel Holtegaard

Reviewed By PernilleI - Copenhagen, Denmark

The mansion in itself is adorable - just outside Copenhagen and less visited probably but worth the detour if there is a nice exhibition, as the house itself doesn't visit on its own.
There is also a beautiful baroque garden - maybe more pleasing in summer, but nevertheless intriguing with its strict architecture.
The restaurant which also visits without going into the museum is very nice and cosy. Laid back decoration feeling like you are dining at friends; excellent card and very nicely prepared food.
Definitely worth keeping an eye on their Exhibitions!

Frederiksborg Castle

This historic castle was constructed on three Islands and is surrounded by lake and beautiful Gardens. Frederiksborg Castle has housed The Museum of National History since 1878. A tour through the museum's many beautiful rooms is an encounter with kings, queens, nobles, the bourgeois, events, and epochs, which have all shaped the country's history and development from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. The museum was founded by brewer J.C. Jacobsen, the founder of Carlsberg.

Reviewed By TravelTrooperX2 - San Mateo, California

If you are visiting in winter, the castle closes at 3pm. This is due to the lack of daylight. Rooms 1-36 are the best (beginning with the Chapel and ending with the Great Hall. The rooms are lavishly decorated. The castle grounds are impressive and beautiful. Allow an hour to tour the castle. We were rushed through in only 30 minutes because of the early closing time. See the castle first and then tour the grounds. The grounds stay open later. IMPORTANT: You must pay to park here. The parking sign and payment kiosk are not at all obvious. We did not see them upon our arrival and returned to find a 650K/$100 USD ticket on our windshield! The ticket agent sits in the parking lot waiting for tourists not to notice that they have to pay. Don’t forget. It is 20k for 2 hours. Castle Ticket is included on your Copenhagen Card.
