1. Johannes Larsen Museet
4.5 based on 89 reviews
Visit the artist Johannes Larsen's home. It stands today just as it did in Larsen's and his fellow Funish Painters' heyday in the early 20th century. Visit the house, the workshop, the winter garden and the gardens. See changing exhibitions of both newer and older art in the modern exhibition buildings.

Lovely artists residence, studio and exhibition space with an old windmill to clamber round
Kerteminde is a pleasant small port with a few old streets. When you get to Larsen's home you find a beautifully retained home full of Larsen's work and that of his wife Alhed. Spacious garden grounds with ducks and geese and a range of buildings, one of

Step into the Ladby Ship grave - Denmark's only Viking ship grave - and walk around the ship, where a Viking king in the early 900's was sent off on his last journey. See an exhibition about the ship and the ship grave, and follow along in the building of the full-size Ladby Ship and the sewing of the Ladby Tapestry.

Nice museum but higher expectations!
There are 2 levels with different rooms, where you can see many artifacts from the Viking period, with a lot of explanations (Danish/English/German). Also there are some helmets/shields that can be tried for pictures which are a nice idea. Outside there i
3. Fjord & Baelt

Fjord&Bælt’s exhibitions are for visitors of all ages. The exhibitions are made up of different rooms where it is possible to immerse yourself in various topics. For instance, in one room you can learn about jellyfish and test your skills at various interactive stations. Another puts you eye-to-eye with the skeleton of a huge sperm whale, where you can test your skills against the fascinating senses and abilities of whales. You can also watch splendid films about the sea on giant screens, which make you feel that you are underwater yourself. The recurring feature of Fjord&Bælt’s exhibitions is our touch pools which provide a unique opportunity to get very close to marine animals. Fjord&Bælt wants to make sure everyone gets his or her hands wet, because we believe that this provides the most profound and intense experience – and hopefully encourages the visitor to ultimately want to take better care of the sea, and not least the aquatic animals living there.

This is a peaceful place for a visit, especially out-of-season (we visited in early October).The roads from Kerteminde are lovely and quiet - they are so narrow in places we were glad not to meet much traffic. There is a good walk round the headland (the

Svanemollen (Swan Mill) was built in 1853 and belonged to the merchant I.A. Larsen. It was taken over by his son, Johannes Larsen, who cared for it until his death in 1961. At the turn of the century, the miller and his family lived in the small, half-timbered house next to the mill, until Johannes Larsen built a more fitting home for them.
