A visit to the home of Karen Blixen – now Karen Blixen Museum – is a must.
I love this place, its aura, its beauty and its history.
Here, on these steps she once stood, greeting visitors – and stepping into her home today, is like stepping back in time – which , – you sort of do. Her original furniture is still there, arranged just like she wanted them. All her interior decor from both Africa and her family home are skilfully arranged to create a very personal style.
Unfortunately visitors are not allowed to take photographs but click here to see the image from the Karen Blixen Museum website.
In other areas of this magnificent house is a cafe, a cinema, a display area.
Karen Blixens father – Wilhelm Dinesen bought Rungstedlund in 1879 and his family and later Karen Blixen lived there until 1958, when Karen Blixen gave it to the Trust, which runs the Museum and the beautiful park and bird sanctuary today.
Read more about the history of Rungstedlund here.
Karen Blixen moved to Rungstedlund after Africa in 1931 and lived here with her mother. She wrote her most famous books here.
