Denmark's National Gallery – in Danish that's Statens Museum for Kunst or SMK – chronicles not only Denmark's Golden Age, but also highlights the works of Dutch masters, and the Parisian powerhouses who reshaped art in the early 20th century. The collection, once the property of kings, mixes permanent and temporary exhibitions to make for a visual feast in the heart of Copenhagen.

The names of great artists seem to float above Paris and the Netherlands, but when you see Carl Bloch's In a Roman Osteria, you'll question why you haven't heard his name sooner. The Danish Golden Age is filled with lesser-known masterpieces from the 19th century, with the National Gallery boasting the largest collection of Christen Købke's work, depicting everyday life in Denmark during the period.

Take a voyage through Western European history, and explore religious depictions from 600 years ago, the boom of nationalist pride, as well as the onset of Paris's artistic prestige. The museum houses a collection of 25 pieces by Matisse and an exhibition devoted to France between 1900-1930.

If contemporary art is more your cup of Carlsberg, you'll find a healthy offering of international installations and mixed media, with sculptures catching your eye as you go from room to room, in some cases filling the entire space.

Insider tip

SMK is located right between three historic parks: The King's Garden, The Botanical Garden and Østre Anlæg. It's the perfect place to relax after you come out of the museum.
