Odrupgaard is an exclusive art museum with a collection that includes names such as Monet, Gauguin, Matisse, Renoir and Hammershoi. Initially, the museum building served as a manor house. You can still sense the atmosphere throughout the old rooms and the park. Additionally, you can experience temporary exhibitions and (on weekends) visit the renowned Danish architect Finn Juhl's house which is a part of the museum. The sculptural extensional adjacent building is designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Zaha Hadid.

How to get there: Take the S-train to Klampenborg or Lyngby Station, and then take bus 388 to Vilvordevej. It is a 2-minute walk from there to the museum.

This is a lovely art museum located in architecturally interesting buildings - part old fashioned villa with a large park and garden around it and with a modern extension by the internationally acclaimed deconstructionist architect, Zara Hadid. The museum was founded by a Danish financier, Wilhelm Hansen, who donated his wonderful collection of French impressionist paintings and statues, as well... More

While on holiday in Copenhagen, and being more than a little disappointed that the Glyptotek French collection wasn't on view due to an upcoming exhibition, I decided I should make the effort, relatively small as it was, to take the train north to Klampenborg and then a local bus to Ordrupgaard to see their Impressionist and Danish collections. Plus the... More

It is a weird mix of new and old - modern and classic. It seem that this museum has a hard time to figure out what it actually is. The buildings, the park, the collection and the temporary exhibitions is pointing in all possible directions. All have its own qualities - all have high standards - but tighter it is... More

A quiet and peaceful art gallery set in stunning grounds - it is well worth visiting the new cafe and small gallery extension by Zaha Hadid.

Elegant and tasteful collection. All major Impressionists. And last but not least, a very nice place: the old and the new exhibition buildings and a cosy garden, beautiful in any season of the year.

I rented a bike and cycled there from the city in about 40 min at a really slow pace. The city is very flat so you don't need to be very fit and from the sounds of it it's faster than mucking about on a bus. The building itself is very interesting even if you don't love it. It hosts... More

This has everything. We came for the sculptures in the garden, the Zaha Hadid extension, Finn Juhl's house, and the Impressionist collection. We were not disappointed. The cafe, set in the Hadid extension is amazing. It looks from the side like a British tank from World War 1. This is not a disparaging remark. It is organic, and flows according... More

The most frequently visited art museum on the Zealand coast in Denmark is probably Louisiana, a museum of modern art, which has its charm but can be rather crowded in the summer. An alternative for those of us who prefer art also of an older date is Ordrupgaard, situated in Charlottenlund, an area closer to Copenhagen. Here you find a... More

Wilhelm & Henny Hansen were attracted to the impressionists from an early stage and their collection quickly grew. When they built their new home at Charlottenlund, the architect designed it with the collection in mind. The museum also holds paintings by Danish painters including L A Ring and a sculpture garden. Famed furniture architect Finn Juhl's home with original interiors... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. In addition to French masters such as Degas, Monet and Renoir, the museum features the works of excellent Danish masters, whose works were hitherto unknown to me. The museum includes the villa of its founder, Wilhelm Hansen, has a lovely and extensive garden (to which there seems to be unlimited access), a very pleasant cafe,... More
