Several of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales were inspired by Thorvaldsen, his art and his museum. We shall listen to one of these fairy tales and together follow Andersen’s tracks, using the building and the art as inspiration for our own fairy tales. Everyone will be provided with a small inspiration booklet with space for their own notes and drawings.

Hans Christian Andersen and Bertel Thorvaldsen knew each other and moved in the same circles in 19th-centuiry Rome and Copenhagen. Andersen was somewhat younger than Thorvaldsen and looked up to him. And this is one of the reasons why many of his tales and stories were inspired by Thorvaldsen, his art and his museum.

Free admission for children. Adults DKK 40.
For children from 9 years of age.
