Karen Blixen Museum

The House/Museum

The Monet pond and tea room on the back terrace

The cutting garden

"The bird sanctuary at Rungstedlund encompasses only 15 hectares but hosts a bountiful bird life. 35 different species breed here, and many others visit the area to seek food. Thanks to, among other things, the old trees and over 100 nesting boxes, there is a teeming population of hole-nesting birds here."

Karen Blixen is buried under the large beech tree

Certainly time to watch "Out of Africa" and "Babette's Feast" one more time.

  1. Beautiful!
    Glad to have you back on Canadian soil!

  2. Excellent. I feel as if I am right back there, leisurely walking about the property and the beautiful woods. Birdhouse presentation is magical!

  3. How wonderful! Those birdhouses are amazing, what a treat. Very inspiring.

  4. Such delightful photos, KB was evidently quite complex...would love to see her Danish habitat. Looks like you all had a great time!
