High Tea – an authentic British dining experience

Nanna Ditzel lived in London for almost 20 years and always served afternoon tea to her guests. Trapholt's café Gustav Lind was inspired by this and is now launching Ditzel High Tea as a morning meal. Get the full 'Nanna Ditzel experience' with a serving consisting of tea and various light dishes such as small pies, sandwiches, cakes and other snacks, before the tour goes into the exhibition.

Dining Week - enjoy a 3-course menu for DKK 250

Again this year, Gustav Lind is part of the Dining Week concept during the autumn holidays. The menu reflects the Danish season and local ingredients. It is "comfort food" presented as beautiful, tasty dishes. Enjoy a three-course menu for just DKK 250. Read more and see the menu here.

You can also enjoy a lunch with a view of the fjord or treat yourself to a piece of cake and a cup of coffee. The café and restaurant also have vegetarian and vegan options.

Design experiences and art exhibitions

Did you know that Trapholt has a unique house by the Danish designer Arne Jacobsen out in the park? The house is called Kubeflex and was designed way back in 1969-1970. Come on a free tour of Kubeflex, sit in Arne Jacobsen's world-famous furniture such as the Swan and the Egg and hear one of Trapholt's guides tell the story behind the unique modular house.

Also experience completely new paper works and sculptures by Danish Michael Kvium and Norwegian Kjell Erik Killi-Olsen. And feel how it feels to step into a painting in Malene Landgreen's solo exhibition Flow of Change.

Creative workshop and activities for children and childlike souls

As always, the autumn holidays offer the traditional creative workshop for children and childlike souls. This year, Trapholt focuses on the Danish designer Nanna Ditzel and her fascination with light and shadows. Create amazing formations limited only by your imagination. The creative workshop is open from 11-15. It is free to participate when the entrance to the museum has been paid. Remember that children and young people under the age of 18 have free entry to the museum.

Take a walk in the park

If the autumn weather is suitable, you and your family can go for a walk in Trapholt's beautiful park surrounded by sculptures and apple trees. With the museum's scenic location overlooking Kolding Fjord, the park appears as an extension of the museum visit.

In other words: Trapholt is the ideal destination for your autumn holiday. Whether you are interested in art, design, nature or creative activities, there is something for everyone.
