Hirschsprungske Samling

Heinrich Hirschsprung (1836–1908), a Danish tobacco baron and patron of Danish artists, is credited with establishing the Hirschsprungske Samling, one of Copenhagen’s greatest museums.

The collection is housed in a Neo-Classical structure beside stre Anlaeg Park and has been on display since 1911. The collection comprises pieces by well-known Danish painters from the “Golden Age” during the first half of the 19th century. Along with other works from the late 19th and 20th centuries, this contains compositions by Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, Christen Kbke, Wilhelm Ferdinand Bendz, and Nicolai Wilhelm Marstrand.
A 45-minute free tour is offered every Sunday at 2 p.m. that focuses on the works of a different artist each time.
