The Hirschsprung Collection is beautifully situated in the green parklands of the Ostre Anlaeg on the old ramparts of Copenhagen. The museum houses Heinrich and Pauline Hirschsprung's collection of Danish art and first opened its doors to the public in the summer of 1911. The museum was designed by the architect H.B. Storck, while the original interior and display was designed by the art historian Emil Hannover, who also became the museum's first Director. Henrich Hirschsprung donated his collection of works from the 19th century to the Danish state in 1902. The collection includes masterpieces by the Danish Golden age painters such as Eckersberg, Lundbye and Kobke as well as artists from the modern period such as the famous Danish painters P.S. Kroyer and Vilhelm Hammershoi. Opening hours: Wednesday-Sunday: 11 AM - 4 PM. Admission: Adults 75 DDK. Under 18 free.

One of my favourite collections. I visit whenever I am in town. I took 18 people who regularly attend my History of Art Lectures to see these masterpieces. Light captured like so few artists have done. Ever!

If you like Danish art do not forget to visit Hirschsprung Collection in Copenhagen. In tiny rooms you can admire the pearls of Danish painting. The audio-guide is informative and strongly recommended.
