Located on the east shore of Denmark and 40 km north of Copenhagen, it is the most visited art museum in Denmark and has gained a reputation as a museum in touch with the zeitgeist of the contemporary art world. The museum is also acknowledged as a milestone in modern Danish architecture, noted for the synthesis it creates of art, architecture and landscape. That very well explains our rationale to make it a must-see priority.
We wished we had more time in Copenhagen — it’s so hard to cover all the beauty of this city within a few days. (Maybe moving here permanently would be a solution?)
on our way there
The trip to museum was made amiable by fuzzy sunshine and lovely Danish houses along the way. When I was a kid, I dreamt about living under a pitched roof just like one of these. That's the take-away from years of consumption of Andersen's Fairy Tales.
art, architecture and landscape
A walk in the Sculpture Park is an essential part of the Louisiana experience. Standing at the shoreline, we could almost see the silhouette of Sweden on the other end. One can explore, get lost and find calm in the panoramic views and see how the buildings blend into the landscape.
The museum contains a surprisingly large collection of works of Alberto Giacometti. (The two most expensive sculpture auctioned in history were by him. So you get the sense how amazing it is.)
