H.C. 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 H.C. 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 H.C. Andersen’s familiar and well-loved fairytales, children as well as adults can explore the many crates and boxes, where one can find lots of intricately worked materials and fairytale elements. You can write with pen and ink on paper, 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”.
