Our Orangery is closed for the wither, but we are happy to welcome you back from 25th March 2018
The modern, octagonal orangery at Bakkehuset functions as a restaurant during the summer season. Here, culinary experiences are offered in the form of delicate open sandwiches, cakes, wine, liqueur, coffee and tea, all inspired by history though interpreted for modern taste buds. There was originally an octagonal gazebo and an orangery in the garden in the 1700s. The form and content of these two buildings has been combined in a modern orangery in 2017, designed by Rønnow Arkitekters, Laust Ovesen. Read more about the history of Bakkehuset or the landscape garden.
In the orangery´s restaurant, the emphasis is on craftsmanship, raw materials and the changing of the seasons. We are pleased to offer the best of the best to you. The orangery´s sandwiches are developed by the Executive Chef, Allan Haunstrup, the wine is delivered by Rosforth & Rosforth, and our beer comes from Nørrebro brewery. Schnapps and fruit juice, based on old recipes, are also on offer. In cooperation with Risteriet,(A specialist coffee supplier) coffee is on offer, made with time and respect for the selected coffee bean. In the Rahbeks´ time it was tea that was primarily served, and the orangery offers five great teas, supplied by the Sing Tea House. There is also an excellent selection of cakes all made from scratch by the skilled confectioner Helle Kleist, and inspired by the pastries and cakes from the Rahbeks´ time.
