In the early years of this century Johannes Larsen, painter and millowner, created his own paradise at Møllebakken in Kerteminde. 

The old mill still turns, the many beautiful, rare trees of the park still blossom each spring, the view of Kerteminde and the great Belt is as lovely now as it was then - and all of this can be enjoyed by all those who visit Møllebakken.

No matter whether you are interested in mills, art, architecture, rare trees or cultural historyh, the Johannes Larsen Museum are well worth a visit. The painter's house remains unaltered, with the original furniture and effects. Drink in the atmosphere of a cultural era of Danish life, where daily life and natural beauty were the focus of interest. 

And pay a visit to the new exhibition buildings, which has 20 exhibit rooms arranged accordings to themes and with more than 50 painters represented. 

The permanent collection is not the only attraction at the Johannes Larsen Museum; every year there are at least three special exhibits and a series of concerts is also offered to the many guests at the museum.
