I don’t think any tourist would ever visit the small town of Humlebaek if it wasn't for the Louisiania Museum of Modern Art. We were there for the same reason so we didn’t care that much. On our way to/from the museum we noticed a bakery (very helpful if you want to spend much at the beautiful but overpriced café of the museum), a pizzeria and...more
The wonderful park grounds of Louisiana Museum topped our visit there.

After a long tour among the beautiful modern art items of the Louisiana museum you can go for swimming!! Hublebaek has some nice beaches, some of them are located near the museum grounds, right down the hill. They are small in size, we noticed that most of the people use the small quay (there are many here and there along the beach) for entering...more
Vast labyrinth of art galleries in woodlands on the coast of the ?resund.I have read comments by well known architects who describe it as the best art gallery in the world. It also has great art as well as architecture. Considerably extended in 1991, this museum takes you along a journey around its site, above ground and beneath the hillside.You...more
Obviously the best thing about Louisiana Café is its location, on the top of the hill with panoramic view of Oresund in front of you. Of course you can go there and enjoy the view or have picnic on your own without staying at the café tables.
I guess during winter the visitors stay inside, there are many tables but everyone was outside in late July. The service was typical danish, smiling faces etc
If you are hungry though they have sandwiches for 79DKK, buffet lunch for 118DKK, buffet dinner for 148DKK, cakes and sweets 25-38DKK.
We preferred to take something to drink only, coffee/tea/hot chocolate are at 25DKK, soft drinks at 24DKK, organic juice at 28DKK, draught beer at 32-48DKK, glass of house wine at 45DKK.

The ride lasts about 35’.By the way If you have 24h pass (for all zones) or a CPH card you don’t need a ticket. If you...more
Once at Humlebaek train station you will realize that it’s a small peaceful town that you can easily walk around.For Louisiana Museum of Modern Art you have to turn left and walk up the highway to the museum (20’ away). A great alternative is to take the free bicycle taxi (pics 1-2), we noticed that a lot of visitors didn’t really see them (they...more
Opening hours:10am to 5pm (or 10pm on Wednesdays)Transport:Since this place is a whopping 30km away from Copenhagen, it is best to take a train from the Central railway station on Vesterbrogade.
