Holger Drachmanns house

Holger Henrik Herholdt Drachmann (October 9, 1846 – January 14, 1908), was a Danish poet and dramatist. He is an outstanding figure of the Modern Break-Through.

The son of Dr AG Drachmann, whose family was of German extraction, he was born in Copenhagen. Owing to the early death of his Danish mother, the child was left much to his own devices and developed a fondness for semi-poetical performances, organising his companions in heroic games, in which he himself took such parts as those of Peder Tordenskjold and Niels Juel.


The house is now Holger Drachmanns Museum.
