A short train ride up the coast from Copenhagen is the quiet seaside town of Humlebæk, home to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Since its opening in 1958, Louisiana has been almost as famous for its architecture and setting overlooking the sea, as for its international collections of artworks.

The experience

Plan a day trip is well-worth to experience this worldwide renowned and unique art venue. The museum organizes eight to ten major exhibitions annually with some permanent highlights such as the Giacometti Hall and the Jorn Room.

This collection is of the largest of Scandinavia with more than 4000 works from every genre and an emphasis on sculpture and painting.

With the entrance ticket, you can also enjoy its beautiful sculpture park and the Louisiana Café. The 45 sculptures exposed are an important part of the museum experience all year round. From the outside, you can appreciate how architecture, art, and nature blend to create a relaxed atmosphere while being a marvel of Danish design.

This activity is recommended for a friends-gathering as well as for a date.
