You will find Ordrupgaard in scenic, peaceful surroundings just 10 km north of Copenhagen. The museum offers a unique array of world-class art, design and architecture. The park has art to enjoy, too.
Monet, Degas, Gauguin – and Hammershøi
At Ordrupgaard, you can explore one of Northern Europe’s most important collections of French Impressionism, featuring leading figures like Monet, Degas and Gauguin. In addition, visitors can enjoy an exquisite collection of Danish art focusing on Vilhelm Hammershøi and his contemporaries – as well as a succession of special exhibitions.
Finn Juhl, Zaha Hadid and Snøhetta
You can also visit the former home of furniture designer and architect Finn Juhl. There his iconic furniture enters into a lively dialogue with the great Danish artists of modernism, just like when Finn Juhl lived there.
Star architect Zaha Hadid and the award-winning design studio Snøhetta have also made their imprint on Ordrupgaard. The latter have contributed the extension Himmelhaven (the Heavenly Garden), which will be inaugurated in 2021.
Art in the open air
In the park, you can explore works by leading contemporary artists. All visitors can give their inner child free rein, because you are welcome to run, jump and climb on the art. Of course, you may simply prefer to settle on the lawn and enjoy the many sensory impressions offered by the scenic park.
Ever since the couple who founded Ordrupgaard, Wilhelm and Henny Hansen, moved here in 1918, a pleasant, informal atmosphere has infused this place. It still does, making the museum popular with all generations.
