This is a small museum that was Karen's home. We were particularly interested as we had been to the other museum in Nairobi. You really get a sense of how she lived and the important people in her life. There is a guided tour every...More

For anyone with an interest in Karen Blixen, this is very worthwhile. There is a 100 DKK fee for the house and museum. Her life is chronicled in a thoughtful way. The bird sanctuary is free. Be sure to walk up to her grave near...More

The location is perfect, located just next to Rungstedgaard hotel overlooking the Öresund strait. If you are interested in Karen Blixen, have seen the movie "Out of Africa" or have read any of her books, this is the place to visit. She is buried in...More

A small, quaint museum offering an insight into the life of Karen Blixen. Set in her original house on the seafront in Rungsted, the grounds are also very pretty and worth a stroll around.

This small but intimate museum is located a relatively short train ride north of Copenhagen. We found it an easy and quite pleasant trip and took the walk through the woods to reach the museum. There is very good signage from the train station and...More

The museum is charming and very personal. One can see all the rooms on the main floor and they are just as they were when Karen Blixen lived there. The informational and educational exhibit at the beginning was very helpful and sensitive. I particularly loved...More
