Hans Christian Andersen visited Bakkehuset as a young man and here he found inspiration and support to become a writer.

As a tribute to Kamma Rahbek and Hans Christian Andersen’s friendship and to fledgling writers of the future we have set up a “Fairytale Academy” on the ground floor of the museum for families with children and others who wish to be creative on their own. Inspired by Andersen’s familiar and well-loved fairytales, children and adults can go on discovery in the big chest of drawers. Here they can find lots of intricately worked materials and fairytale elements in the many crates and boxes. You can write in pen and ink, play the princess and the pea, build boxes à la Kamma Rahbek, do shadow theatre or record your very own fairytale in our “H.C. Studio”.
