Takes the local train from Helsingör towards Gilleleje. Press the stop button to exit in Firhøj. Walk Firhøjvej north past ripening rape fields, through residential neighborhoods to Munkerhuphus which overlooks the sea. A beautiful wooden house and "exhibition site". Here the artist Gunnar Aagaard Andersen worked between 1958 and 1982. In the garden are several sculptures and works of art by different artists.

Goes around exploring the various arts. It's mixed, nice or nothing for me. A bench sculpture, behind it is Andersen's own Identical elements. From trees hang rings, it is part of a larger exhibition in northern Själland. A pigeon stands calmly and studies the work. Past a glass stand with "Back to nature", various materials. Beach chairs. A staircase leads down to a room of willow by the beach. Rocky beach does not invite bathing.

Going up to the house. Entry fee. There is a temporary exhibition with shapes and light. In one room is Andersen's form and design. A foam sofa doesn't look so nice. Armchair and a chair for standing. There is a café but we have decided to eat at Fyrkroen one kilometer away. Outside the house is a kind of installation. An interesting "exhibition site". We walk towards the food and Nakkehoved lighthouse.
