The Garden

The garden around Johannes and Alhed Larsen’s home was intended to provide motifs for art. So in the large garden they created space for rare trees and plants, and birds and animals. There was also an extensive vegetable garden.

Worth a visit in itself

The garden at the Johannes Larsen Museum is worth a visit in itself. The beautiful garden is an oasis of rare trees and shrubs, old fruit trees and beautiful rose beds, and offers stunning views of the Great Belt. Johannes Larsen’s garden teemed with fauna. The old ponds have been preserved and no visit to the museum is complete without a glimpse of the geese, chickens and ducks.

There are tables and chairs for general use in the garden, so you can enjoy your lunch or a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in the lovely setting.


The vegetable garden

In the spring of 2016, a new kitchen garden was created at the Johannes Larsen Museum, just behind the Swan Mill. The garden is maintained by museum volunteers. Much of the produce from the vegetable garden is used by Kaffehuset. The garden of the Johannes Larsen Museum is part of the Danish Society of Open Gardens.
