Fredensborghusene

Jørn Utzon's Fredensborghuse was built in 1962-63 on the initiative of the association Danes Worldwide. Today, the building is considered an architectural gem. You can experience the architecture when you visit the museum.

Utzon was inspired by the Chinese building style, and Fredensborghusene is a further development of the houses in the Forbidden City in Beijing. The complex consists of 30 terraced houses, 47 angle-built farmhouses and a communal house with restaurant, function rooms and nine guest rooms.
