Trapholt offers experiences for the whole family during the summer holidays

Are you going to Denmark for the summer holidays? Then the Trapholt Museum of Art and Design, idyllically located by the Kolding Fjord, is worth a visit.

Anyone spending their vacation in Denmark in July or early August still has the chance to experience the exhibition on the Danish design icon Nanna Ditzel. Creative workshops and imaginative experiences await children and their families. For teenagers and adults, the Maria Torp exhibition serves as a starting point for conversations about human rights.

Sommerstemning på Trapholt


Last chance for the well-received Nanna Ditzel exhibition

Until August 11th, you still have the opportunity to see the popular design exhibition on the Danish design icon Nanna Ditzel, which has been well-received by critics. The exhibition includes, among other things, some foam universes that also encourage adults to play. Unlike other designers and architects of her time, Nanna Ditzel consistently insisted on breaking new ground and viewing spaces and furniture in new and liberating ways. Learn more here


Shaping a Pattern: An exhibition that provides food for thought

We have heard from teenagers and adults that this exhibition really makes you think. We have also heard that the themes of the exhibition encourage many guests to have subsequent conversations. The exhibition “Shaping a Pattern” by the Danish artist Maria Torp consists of twelve portraits and videos of leading activists and focuses on human rights and living conditions in different countries. “The most important exhibition of the year,” wrote the critics of the Danish art magazine “Kunstavisen” – Read more about the exhibition here


Creative workshops and entertaining tasks for children

In the summer, Trapholt offers special activities for the youngest family members. In the middle of the art – in the Richard Mortensen Hall – creative workshops inspired by the exhibitions are offered. Here, you can create collages and watercolor paintings, play with shadows, and take home a unique, self-made souvenir. The creative workshops are open daily from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM throughout July and until August 11th.


Guided tours inside and outside

For adults and families, short introductions to the exhibitions and tours of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Kubeflex vacation house are offered daily from July 1st to August 11th. Participation is free for all museum guests.

Food and drinks

When your legs need a rest and it’s time to refuel with food and drinks, we invite you to visit Trapholt’s Café Gustav Lind. Here, you can enjoy not only the best view of the city over the Kolding Fjord but also a delicious lunch, a Wednesday dinner, coffee and cake, and much more. Have you brought your own food? Then there are cozy corners with tables and benches in the sculpture park. If the weather invites you to get comfortable inside, we have a dining room in the old half-timbered house that you are welcome to use.
