Karen Blixen’s Rungstedlund

Rungstedlund is situated north of Skovshoved along the beautiful coastal road “Strandvejen” with lovely views to both woodland and across the Sound to Sweden. Returning home after seventeen years in Kenya, Karen Blixen sat down here at her desk and wrote herself into world literary greatness.

The rooms of Karen Blixen remain just as she left them, providing the museum’s visitors with a vivid and authentic impression of the writer’s very personal home, full of ambience and character.

Enjoy a walk in the Bird Sanctuary and spoil yourself in the museum’s cozy cafe named after Karen Blixen’s faithful housekeeper, Madam Carlsen.

Feel free to ask at reception for information on current exhibitions and special offers on admission for guests at Skovshoved Hotel.
