Drachmanns Hus is open

Home to the poet and painter Holger Drachmann.
Drachmanns Hus still looks very much like it did when the Skagen painter and author Holger Drachmann lived there from 1902-1908. On the walls, there are about 150 drawings and paintings, mostly by Drachmann, but other artists of the era are also represented. Drachmann bought the house and named it Pax when he was planning to marry his third wife, Soffi Drachmann, (née Lasson).
