  • A must for fans of Karen Blixen. Well preserved house of the writer and artist. Just north of Copenhagen. A bit tricky to get there by public transport. Entrance fee 150kr. Lovely cafe.  more »

  • 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.
