THE COUNTRYSIDE OF COPENHAGEN
Thirty minutes from downtown by train, the Danish coast houses some a real gems.
Facing the sea, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is a true masterpiece that contains a permanent collection to rival many. Here you will find Danish artists from after 1945 alongside Picasso, Giacometti, Dubuffet, Yves Klein, Andy Warhol, Rauschenberg, Henry Moore, and Louise Bourgeois. The park is scattered with sculptures by Calder, César, Laurens, Shapiro, and Sekine. And at the moment, the “Pop Art Design” exhibition is showing the correlation between art and design of that era and their post-70s influence until June 9th.
At the end of the day, strolling along the sea at sunset is a must. The view is wonderful from the Louisiana Museum or from one of the pontoons on the seafront (www.louisiana.dk).
Five minutes away, the largest organic farm in Denmark is spreading its garden. More than 40 farmers cultivate about 700 varieties of fruits and vegetables. A basket is made with varieties of the seasons, delivered door to door with original recipe proposals in a wooden crate or sold on the market once a week. An innovative way to develop new interactions between farmers and cooks and strengthen their relationships.
