The Hirschsprung Collection is beautifully situated in the green parklands...

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.

This is one of my favourite art galleries in Copenhagen. I had a lovely experience when I visited. I came here after visiting the National gallery of Art which was very busy and hectic.

This small museum has a lovely collection of Danish art from the 19th and early 20th century. The visit includes a very informative audio guide which comes in several languages.This is not the place to go if you want to see big international names but the museum does a great job of presenting the Danish art of this time period.

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!

This gallery specializes in Danish painting from the 1800s into the early 1900s. All the major Danish painters are represented. There are many landscapes and portraits, and some truly striking and original paintings. Lighting is very good, and photos are allowed. A very good audio guide is included. The gallery closes at 4 pm, an hour earlier than we expected.... More

Located across the lake from the National Gallery, The Hirschsprung Collection houses the large collection of Danish art collected by Heinrich Hirschsprung in a purpose-built neoclassical building opened in 1911. The collection is particularly strong in 19th and 20th Danish artists. Donated to the Danish state in 1902, they continue to acquire works to fill gaps and strengthen the collection.... More

The reason for visiting the Hirschsprung Collection was that the museum hosted a number of paintings from the great Danish and Norwegian painters' period in Rome and Sora around 1880. Beautiful works of, e.g P.S. Krøyer, a Danish so-called Skagenspainter and the Norwegian painters Eilif Peterssen and Christian Meyer Ross, just to mention a few. Besides a film called Civita...

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.

I splurged on the Copenhagen Card while I was in the city, and tried to stop by as many galleries as possible. I stopped by the Hirschsprung Collection for a bit after going to the SEK. I really enjoyed the curation of the artwork, and the "who needs to see the wall?" aesthetic of the gallery. There were a few... More
