"Louisiana Museum of Modern Art" Humlebæk by mindcrime

Humlebæk Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 38 photos

Humlebaek is a small seaside town (35km north of Copenhagen, on the shores of Oresund). Some years before it was just a small fishing village and now a peaceful suburb of Greaten Copenhagen area. Hublebaek has some nice beaches but above all it houses one of the best museums in Denmark

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is obviously a good reason to visit this town. You can easily spend hours admiring its great collection of paintings, sculptures and other items on several different but interesting temporary or permanent exhibitions. It’s located up on hill, near the coast on a beautiful spot and even if modern art isn’t your cup of tea you will love the view (Sweden can clearly be seen) and you may have a picnic at the relaxing gardens around or –why not- try to swim with the locals at the beach below the museum.

Just take the train from Copenhagen Central Station (35’ away) or like we did visit Humlebaek on your way back from Helsingor (10’ away by train). Once in Humlebaek turn left and walk up to the museum (20’ away) or take the free bicycle taxi

Louisiana Art Museum is open Tuesday to Friday 11.00-22.00, weekends 11.00-18.00.

The ticket is 95DKK, expensive yes but worth every krone of it.

    The beautiful weather and sunshine you enjoyed were probably included in the Louisiana Museum price, which made it so expensive!
