Michael Palin loves the Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi – do you?

On this tour we walk in the footsteps of the famous Danish painter, who lived from 1864 to 1916. We visit the places at Christianshavn where Hammershøi lived and worked and where he found many of his motifs. And you will, of course, hear the story of his life and art.

During the lifetime of Hammershøi, Copenhagen expanded in a whole new way and became a real modern metropolis. But in his paintings there are no signs of this modern new life. Hammershøi's paintings are without people - except from Ida, his wife - and always in a distinctive grey-tinted palette – elegant, silent, secret, poetic but also powerful paintings of interiors and buildings.

The tour has a duration of 1 ½ - 2 hours.

Bringing a monkey home?

If so, it is probably Kay Bojesen's wooden monkey which saw the light of day back in 1951.
Bojesen (1886-1958) was asked to make a coat hanger for an exhibition of children's furniture - the long arms bring the hanger down to a reachable height, and the short legs leave room for cap and scarf. Today, the monkey is considered a Danish design classic and is to be found in many homes all over the world.

On this tour, we walk the street, Bredgade, in the very center of Copenhagen where Kay Bojesen got his education as a silversmith and later had his shop with a jumble of silverware, wooden toys, bamboo prams and teak bowls. You will hear about contemporary famous designers as Finn Juhl and Georg Jensen with whom Bojesen had a personal connection - and we will of course talk about the great interest in Danish design, we experience in these years.

The tour has a duration of 1 ½ - 2 hours.

We also walk in the footsteps of
Søren Kierkegaard, H. C. Andersen, Herman Bang, and Karen Blixen
