Louisiana Museum: We recommend to visit the Louisiana Museum for Modern Art located in Humlebaek which is 13 km from our villa. Louisiana Museum is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Denmark and a great place to spend the day inside or outside or both.
The scenery and surroundings next to the ocean is magnificent and you can stroll around in the park and enjoy the art. There is a special kids section where the kids can play outside or be doing art themselves under supervision while the parents can concentrate on the great art work and events inside and outside.

Hornbaek is a small beach resort town close by Copenhagen and only a 20 minute ferry ride away from Sweden. People from both countries love going to Hornbaek because of the famous beach and the wonderful forests that stretches along the coast line. The little town has several restaurants and shopping is possible 7 days a week the whole year around except for December 25th and January 1st.
Hornbaek has great traffic connections to the popular tourist attractions mainly north of Copenhagen such as Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek, Hamlet's Castle Kronborg in Helsingor where the famous Shakespeare play is on every summer performed by world famous actors that come here for the summer. Other castles of great beauty are Frederiksborg, Fredensborg and H.M. the Queens Castle Amalienborg in Copenhagen.
Hornbaek has 7 golf courses nearby, tennis courts, walking and bike paths along the coast line, seafood and international restaurants, cafes, shops and several supermarkets.
Golf: We have 7 great golf courses within 15 minutes of driving from our villa. There is also a wonderful playground right on the beach for families where there is a grill and many picnic tables right by the harbour. There has also recently opened a new wellness center with underground heated swimming pool 5 minutes walk for our villa. It has just been written up in destination travel magazine as 1 of 100 must do activities in Europe. For the cozy village there are a whole lot of activites and things to do and places to eat and they are all within a 10 minute walk from our villa.
Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: We are a Danish/US couple with 3 children/young people that live, study and work internationally. During our absence in Denmark we rent out our summer villa. We are surprised and humble that so many different nationalities from all over the world appreciate and take such good care of our villa during their stay with us.
Why the Owner Chose Copenhagen: We are in outskirts of a small preserved forest only 3-4 minutes from a wonderful white sandy beach with big dunes and clean ocean water.
On a sunny summer day you will be surprised to see thousands of people on the beach which is big enough to accommodate everybody and still offer privacy in the dunes.
Hornbaek village is adorable and we have 3 supermarkets, 5 restaurants, 3 sushi/pizza/burger shops, great local shopping with a mix of new and old, gallery, local market on weekends - all within 4-5 minutes of walking from our summer villa.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Apart from the beach, museums, castles, amusement parks, 7 golf courses, the forest with its wonderful walking/bike trails there are lots of other things to do.
Our villa is situated north of Copenhagen and it offers easy access by car and public transportation to and from Copenhagen in 45-60 minutes.
Sweden is across the ocean and when you are on the beach you can look across the water at Sweden 4-5 km or less than 4 miles. Take the train/car to Helsingor/Elsinore and the ferry across and you are in Sweden less than an hour after you left our villa. Though the Scandinavia countries share thousands of years of history and there are many resemblances they still differ not only in language but also in landscape. You don't have to drive far and suddenly you have mountains and deep forests and houses that look very different from what you will see in Denmark. If you have the time and the energy it is worthwhile.
