A very sweet and informative little museum with very nice and dedicated staff. The Restaurant had a very meager menu, unusual for Denmark, but also here the staff was very friendly.

I love the place. And i had the chance to visit the house of Karen Blixen in Nairobi. What a story, the one of Karen Blixen. You need to read her story before you visit the place.

I did not really know a lot about Karen Blixen but a friend recommended this small museum. Tours are every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour. You have to put covers over your shoes and are given a short introduction - ours was in Danish and then English, you then followed a marked out route around the rooms. The flower displays are wonderful and it was an interesting couple of hours. We also walked around the wooded garden which was very peaceful with only the sounds of birds singing. Down by the stream there were clouds of colourful dragonflies and tiny frogs in the stream. There is a little cafe on site and we had a quick bite to eat, but despite it not being busy we did have to wait a while and I found the food very plain. I was later told that we should have crossed the road to the marina where there are a number of eateries. We drove to the museum where there is car parking.

At the recommendation of our daughter , my wife and I took a train from Copenhagen and walked about a mile from the train station through some woods to discover the life of a truly original character. Most people know the connection of Karen Blixen and the book and movie "Out Of Africa".We had the benefit of prior knowledge from our daughter but we weren't fully prepared for this visit. The staff is very interesting and helpful but you can appreciate and enjoy most of the exhibits as they are well planned. Artifacts and information are everywhere and we found ourselves drawn into the life of a most unusual person. The house itself is in a beautiful setting as well. There is a small but very nice gift shop and a cafe that was closed for an hour for a seminar so we didn't have the chance to try anything out. It is an easy trip and well worth it. But why " A Compass Or A Bag Of Bread Crumbs" ? There are a few excellent signs to follow from the train station to the place where you start on a trail through the woods. There are NO SIGNS on the trail. It would be helpful to have a few small ones along the way. We just kept going and after some decision making , we found the house. We actually walked right by her grave as it's a flat slab of rock lying under a tree that happened to be covered with leaves. We realize that most people probably drive or take a bus but that beautiful walk through the woods really put us in the proper frame of mind to learn about Karen. BUT - the real problem for us was finding our way back. We thought it wouldn't be difficult but there seemed to be even more paths to chose. On our first try , we ended back at the house. On our second try , we also made a wrong turn but met a couple coming from the station and they set us right. I guess a compass or scattering bread crumbs could have helped us but about 2 or 3 small signs on the path would be perfect. We wouldn't have missed the experience of the house but hope the staff doesn't have to comb the woods each evening to recover easily confused visitors like us.
