This opulent rural estate, made famous by Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa, is where the author was born and where she authored the majority of her works while under the pen name Isak Dinesen.

The house was first utilized as an inn after being constructed in 1500. Her father purchased the land in 1879. It was turned into a museum honoring the author’s life and work in 1991 and is presently maintained by a foundation she founded. Photos and other personal belongings are displayed, and the interiors haven’t altered much. The nearby park is where Blixen’s grave is located.
