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.

One of the best museums in Denmark

The museum houses paintings of early Modernism by various masters including Cezanna, Monet, Alfred Sisley, and others in the permanent exhibition wing. New extension by Zaha Hadid opens up to embrace the landscape with contemporary sculptures / installation in the Park. I like the outdoor artworks in particular that invite participation of the audience, like the mirror installation by Jeppe... More

This art exhibition lies approx. 15 minutes outside of Copenhagen (S train = S tog). It took us about a 10 minutes walk from the train station "Charlottenlund" to get to the site of Ordrupgaard. The wonderful monument designed by Zaha Hadid lies in a vaste and beautiful parc. We enjoyed the parc with many sculptures and plastics of several... More

First of all, to reach the museum you need to get the train to Klampenborg (the Øresundståg expresses stop there) then cross the road for the number 388 bus for a 5-minute ride (it's short enough to walk back once you know the way) costing 24DKR. The bus stops just at the edge of the park and runs every 30... More

Watching Monet, Degas, Gauguin, Matisse, Manet, Pissarro, Courbet and others in a mansion, quite impressive. Even small Rodin sculptures! Also the Hammershoi collection is interesting. But also Finn Juhl's house is impressive, with interesting art and furniture. Warmly recommended!

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
