Bakkehuset is an important heritage site with a remarkable story of the Danish Golden Age and era of Romanticism. Discover Kamma and Knud Lyne Rahbek’s authentically furnished home from the early 19th century where the house was a meeting place for a cultural and literary circle of significant and creative personalities such as Hans Christian Andersen, Adam Oehlenschläger and J.L. Heiberg. The museum with its unique collection of furniture, paintings, books, letters and personal possessions has long been a hub for the study and appreciation of literature, culture and art from the 18th and 19th century. Kamma Rahbek herself was a creative and self-possessed woman, known for her beautifully handcrafted boxes. In 2017, Bakkehuset has added several new and delightful additions to the experience: inside a whole new suite of rooms has been opened up for temporary and themed exhibitions, and outside a romantic and historic garden offers lovely strolls before ending up at the Orangery serving tea, coffee and historically inspired food.
