Krogerup is situated in Humlebæk – an old fishing hamlet – 35 kilometres north of Copenhagen and 8 kilometres south of Elsinore. The main building dates from 1776. Inside of the main building, you will find the dining hall with a view of the large manor house garden. Upstairs, you can find the lecture hall with a view of Oresund and Sweden in the Eastern horizon. Towards west, adjacent to the park, is Krogerup Forest which welcomes you with a long lime tree avenue. Nature – a vital key player
The listed main building of Krogerup is situated in a beautiful park with many rare trees due to the former owners being very interested in nature. Here stands the North’s largest hazel tree as well as a majestic copper beech and more than 500 years old oak trees. The park is also home to a tulip tree and several other species of trees that stand in the garden. Scenic Zealand landscape is found surrounding Krogerup. In the summertime, Oresund tempts with a swim, and it is just a 7 – 8 minutes walk to good sandy beaches north or south of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
There are perfect opportunities for exhibitions to many of North Zealand’s sights such as Hamlet’s Kronborg Castle, Fredensborg Castle and its national historic museum, the National Museum of Science and Technology, the Nivaagaard Collection of Paintings, Rudolph Tegner’s Museum in the uncultivated part of North Zealand known as Russia, the Plain and Humlebæk Harbour which is in walking distance from Krogerup. Additionally, there is free admission for participants and students at Krogerup to both the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and the Nivaagaard Collection of paintings. Krogerup is a meeting place for public debate and culture - from the Prime Minister to the poet
Krogerup is situated in the middle of the graceful Zealand landscape between forests and fields close to Oresund by the old gunboat harbour. It represents history, because the main building is more than just a manor house – even though Karen Blixen described it as suitable only for a single family.
