Alhed and Johannes Larsen’s garden, the Johannes Larsen Museum

The Johannes Larsen Museum’s garden is an oasis of rare trees and bushes, old fruit trees, beautiful rose beds and views across the Great Belt.  Johannes Larsen had a huge variety of fauna in his garden, and the old waterholes have been preserved, forming homes for geese, chickens and ducks.
