How to get there

Catch the regional train (Kystbanen) to Humlebæk from København H, Nørreport or Østerport, then it’s a brisk 15 minute walk. Trains leave every 20 minutes for a journey of around 30 minutes.

A short train trip away, this modern art museum – one of the world’s best – is worth a day trip out for its beautiful location alone.

Inside it houses one of the largest modern art collections in Scandinavia, with important pieces by Picasso, Warhol, Giacometti and Henry Moore, as well as putting on world class exhibitions covering anything from design and photography to art and architecture. The ‘Live’ sessions offer the chance for the public to interact with visiting speakers and artists, whilst August sees the venue play host to a literature festival.

After touring the exhibits step out on the cafe’s patio and onto its manicured lawns to wander around the awesome sculpture park. The pieces themselves are impressive but more so against the picturesque backdrop of the Øresund strait, offering panoramic views across to Sweden on most days.
