Ordrupgaard Art gallery
Ordrupgaard Art gallery information
Architect Zaha Hadid’s sexy, slinky glass-and-stone extension put Ordrupgaard, a charming small art museum, on the international map when it opened in 2005. But the museum, housed in a pretty, early-20th-century manor house to the north of Copenhagen, has always had an enviable collection of 19th- and 20th-century art, including works by Gauguin (who lived in Copenhagen for many years), Renoir and Matisse, as well as notable Danish artists of that period such as JT Lundbye and Vilhelm Hammershøj. The museum also incorporates the former home of pioneering 20th-century Danish designer Finn Juhl, as well as a lovely cafe. To get here, take the S-train to Klampenborg, then bus 388.
