Hirschsprung CollectionFree: Wednesdays

The Hirschsprung Collection houses a large collection of Danish art from the 19th and early 20th century. Its emphasis is on the Danish Golden Age (1800-1850AD). Containing a selection of the most important works by masters such as Eckersberg, Købke, Krøyer and Hammershøi, the Hirschsprung Collection offers a representative selection of paintings from one of the most outstanding eras of Danish art history. The museum started off from the personal art collection of Heinrich Hirschsprung – a tobacco manufacturer and patron of arts. Hirschsprung donated his collection to the Danish state and the museum was founded in 1911. When visiting the Hirschsprung Collection, also drop by The National Gallery of Denmark nearby.
