Experience an atmosphere of cosiness, as well as fine materials and craftsmanship from the late 19th century. The Victorian Home is located close to the National Museum. In a private property is a large luxurious apartment, fully furnished in the late 19th century Danish style called "klunkestil". "Klunker" were bobbles of wool used extensively, for example, on the curtains and furniture of the period. It was furnished in 1890 by the merchant Rudolph Christensen. His daughters Gerda and Ellen Christensen later left the contents of their unique home to the National Museum. With the kind permission of the owners of the property, limited numbers of visitors are able to see the apartment largely in its original state. With the exception of two rooms, it appears almost exactly as it did between 1890 and 1914. The curtains are kept drawn in the sitting rooms, as daylight would damage the almost 100-year-old textiles. A visit to the apartment is only possible by joining a guided tour. Guided tours in English take place on Saturdays at 14.00, between June and September. The meeting place for the guided tours is in the main hall of the National Museum.

An apartment lived in by a family who moved in in 1890 - the decor never changed. Two daughters lived on there as maiden ladies until the early 1960s. When the parents died their room was locked, never to be opened again. The rooms give...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
