Copenhagen Day Trips: Karen Blixen Museet

Karen Blixen’s home in Denmark, Rugstedlund, was opened to public after her death and now is the Karen Blixen Museum now. It is easy to reach from Copenhagen via train & bus or directly by car.

The museum offers an opulent collection of Karen Blixen’s books and other publications. There are some her paintings and a movie about aspects of her life. Walking through her old home, you are guided in Danish and English. The museum nicely combines narrative and objects from Karen Blixen’s life so that you can piece together a comprehensive picture of her time, her life and her works.

How to get there from Copenhagen

Hop on the regional train to “Nivå” at the central station or Nørreport and get off at “Skodsborg”. From there, make your way down to “Strandvejen”, the big street along the sea, situated a few steps below the train station. Check out a map or just walk down towards the sea, you won’t be able to miss the street. On the street, take bus number 388 (to Helsingør st.) and get off at “Rungstedvej”. The bus stop is directly at the museum, so you should be able to find it easily. If you are travelling on the weekend, check www.dsb.dk to ensure you won’t have to wait long for the bus.
