Located 40 kms north of Copenhagen (just about 45 minutes by train) in the city of Humlebaek, the Luisiana Museum of Modern Art is set in an amazing location that looks directly at the Øresund, the stretch of water that separates Denmark from Sweden. It’s a very peaceful place where everything’s connected: the buildings to the landscape and to the hundreds of art pieces.
Founded by Knud Jensen in 1958 owes it’s name, Louisiana, to the original owner Alexander Brun’s three wives. They were all called Louise. Don’t you think that’s a funny coincidence?
As I was making researches for what to visit while being in the danish capital, one of the things that everyone kept recommending was this place. I spent a whole afternoon there and I can say that it’s definitely one of those places that should be top of your list when you visit Copenhagen.
