Sophienholm is a museum of paintings, located in a beautiful manor close to lake Bagsværd in North Zealand. The building was constructed in the 1770s, and redesigned in 1805 by J.J. Ramee. Sophienholm lies within an English-style park, where in the old days painters of the Danish Golden Age (the i>Guldaldermalern) met up. Sophienholm shows contemporary exhibitions, like painter Niels Larsen Stevns's work. The museum is only open when special exhibitions are on, though summer concerts are held in the wonderful park, which slopes down towards the lake. The museum also contains the remains of Bregnerødhytten, which in 1949 was decorated by the Cobra artists.
