Karen Blixen Museum

The Karen Blixen Museum at Rungstedlund honors the memory of the Danish author who may be best known for her book, Out of Africa. Blixen was born at Rungstedlund in 1885 and returned to live there after she returned from years in Kenya. The oldest part of the house dates to 1680 and its sits on 40 acres of land on the shores of the Oresund Strait. The rooms of the main building remain almost exactly as they were when Blixen died in 1962 and provide a look into her daily life. A small gallery room displays her paintings, several African portraits and charcoal drawings and the west wing includes a documentary exhibition, museum shop and café.

The land behind the museum has been designated as a bird sanctuary and is open to the public. From the museum’s main entrance, a pleasant walk will take you along a path past a pond and through an orchard until you arrive at the foot of a hill where Blixen is buried.
