The modern octagonal Orangery is not just a place to cultivate flowers and citrus fruits; in the summer it offers a slew of wonderful culinary experiences in the shape of classic Danish open faced rye bread sandwiches, cakes, wine, aquavit, tea and coffee – inspired by history, but interpreted now for modern tastes. In the 18th century an octagonal gazebo with an accompanying orangery were built in the grounds of Bakkehuset. The shape and function of these two garden buildings were combined in 2017 to make Bakkehuset’s modern Orangery. The plans for the current Orangery were drawn up by Laust Ovesen of Rønnow Architects and during the summer months it functions as a lunchtime restaurant. In 2019 the Orangery was nominated in the category of the ‘Best Sanctuary in Town’ by the national broadsheet newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
Smoking policy. Smoking is not permitted in the Orangery, on the terrace in front of it or in any part of the gardens belonging to Bakkehuset. Smokers are therefore requested to use areas beyond the bounds of the museum.
The Orangery is closed during the winter season - see you in 2021!
