Rahbeks Allé 23
1801 Frederiksberg C
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.
Also today, Bakkehuset is buzzing with art and culture. The famous tales of Hans Christian Andersen work as inspiration for creative activities in the cozy family area, Eventyrakademiet.
Surrounding the museum, a romantic and historic garden offers lovely strolls before ending up at the museum café, Orangeriet, where you can enjoy tea, coffee, beer, wine and traditional open sandwiches.
Opening hours: Tuesday-Friday 11-18, Saturday-Sunday 11-17 (Orangeriet is closed in winter)
