When Art and Nature Merge

I’m walking in steep hills among ancient trees in an icy cold rain. I put my course towards the Norwegian Hut.
High above the lake lies the little wooden house as a part of an artistic installation, Eremitagen og bjergbestigersken.
In former time at the same place was a house where poets could sit and write.
In 1993, when the art work was complete, an author could receive the key to the house.
In the middle of the wood with a view over the water artists can meditate or write inspired by nature and tranquillity.
A pale concrete foundation under the house is the starting point for the work of art. The concrete protrusion faces Norway. Thus the name the Norwegian House.

My walk continue towards Sophienholm with its associated buildings and greenhouse. Today I stick to the humble buildings if one might call the Cobra Room for humble.

Some of the most outstanding artists in Denmark are represented at Sophienholm.

  1. What a wonderful place! How inspiring for artists and poets. The water views and the peace would be very calming. Thank you for sharing the story and lovely pictures, Hanna. 🙂

    • Art can express itself in many ways. Nature is a ubiquitous source of inspiration as appears from your own posts, Jane 🙂
      The silence of nature is absolutely unique in the everyday flow of information.
      All the best,

    • Thanks Alen. The hut reminded me of Norway. The silence, the view and after a while two people came walking towards the hut in bad weather.
      I enjoyed the visit 🙂
      All the best,
