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.

We loved seeing the home of Karen Blixen, whose work we both know, and it was interesting to see also her paintings, which were mediocre, in truth, when compared to her fine writing, but which nevertheless were of interest. We also had brunch at the...More
