  • A touch of greatness in all its its simplicity. You can sense the woman behind the literary production. This is a very special experience.

  • Intriguing little museum which can be experienced in all seasons. The tour starts with a personal narrative of a guide and even gets to go around in Her childhood home. The Park and the garden experienced probably best in summer if you want to see the flower garden in full bloom. Be sure to see her headstone in the garden which is beautifully situated in the shade of a huge tree on a small hill.

  • I do love Karen Blixen, so this was a 'must' for me, but I do recommend a visit: it's a lovely place, full of inspiration. Have a walk there and you will be surrounded by the blissful spirit of Karen.

  • You get a pretty full picture of Karen Blixen's life and work after a visit to this museum. You walk around in the house where she lived and there are plenty of photographs on display depicting the different periods in her life in Denmark and Kenya. Some areas of the museum look a bit makeshift, but generally this is an interesting museum and a wonderful place to visit.
  • A well presented depiction of Karen Blixen's life at her family home, now a musuem and bird sanctuary.
  • For all fans of Babette's feast and out of Africa a must 😊sehr lovingly made.
