This is one of The best museums north of Copenhagen (of course still not on the same level as Louisiana which is hard to beat) with An amazing addition to the building by Zaha Hadid. Inside are some interesting exhibitions (Picasso was great) and always lovely curated. It's a mist to visit Finn Juhls House in the backyard where the... More

At Ordrupgaard we found both fine French impressionist paintings, modern architecture and contemporary art sculptures. A small gemstone hidden away in the former residence of Danish art collectors. Set in a beautiful garden, open to the public free of charge and displaying sculptures by contemporary Danish and International artists, you may decide to enter into the original villa, and to...

We went to Ordrupgaard for the exhibition about the disagreement between Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gaugin in the yellow house in Arles, France in the 1880's. The exhibition was very interesting and well explained. The ordinary exhibition was also very good. And the cafeteria served a nice light lunch at a reasonable price.

In the small village Charlottenlund is located an Art Museum named Ordrupgaard. There are frequently changing art exhibitions, but the house collection is surely worth your visit. Impressive is the garden with huge beautiful statues and also an area with funny mirrors. The location is fabulous attractive with views over the Öresund sea. The coastal area along the Öresund is...

The location of this museum/gallery is amazing! It was a little further out of Copenhagen but not tricky to get to if you follow the directions on their website - we walked back to the station at the end of the visit to enjoy being out in the country (it was autumn and the leaves were turning). The architecture (old... More

The museum is located just north to the city. The museum's garden is so beautiful that it's worth going there even for just a cup of coffee. The art selection is nice & the new wing which was planned by Zaha Hadid is magnificent. There is also a very nice garden sculpture by Jeppi Hein. Don't miss it. You can... More

The Extension made by the archistar Zaha Hadid is a new building connected to the old one, and is the location for temporary exibitions and the coffe shop. The... More

This was a very small museum that we visited because it was listed on the Copenhagen Card. It was difficult to find for us at least and another mother/daughter duo from the area that we happened upon while trying to find it. I followed the directions of the google map search but didn't do the bus right. At the very... More

How to get there: 1.Use the journey planner Rajseplanen when planning a visit; it helps especially since Bus 388 runs only every 30 minutes! 2.Take the s-train (line C) to Klampenborg from Kobenhavn H (Copenhagen Central Station). 3. Upon alighting at Klampenborg Station, cross the road to take Bus 388 (going towards Lyngby St). <By the way, turn right and... More
