There was originally an octagonal gazebo and an orangery in the garden in the 1700s. The form and content of these two buildings have been combined in a modern orangery in 2017, designed by Rønnow Arkitekter, Laust Ovesen. Read more about the history of Bakkehuset or the romantic garden.
The modern, octagonal orangery at Bakkehuset act as a restaurant during the summer season. Here, culinary experiences are offered in the form of delicate open sandwiches, cakes, wine, liqueur, coffee and tea, inspired by history though interpreted for modern taste buds.
In the restaurant of the orangery, the emphasis is on the craft of cooking, fresh ingredients and the seasons. We are pleased to be able to offer you the very best. The orangery’s smørrebrød, traditional Danish openfaced sandwiches, are developed by our chef, Allan Haunstrup, the wine is delivered by Rosforth & Rosforth, and our beer come from Nørrebro Brewery. Schnapps and fruit juice, derived from old recipes, are also on offer. In cooperation with Risteriet,(a special coffee supplier) we offer coffee, made with time and respect for the selected coffee bean. The Rahbeks’ were known for the tea they offered their guests and the orangery offers five great teas, supplied by Sing Tea House. Furthermore we have an excellent selection of cakes all made from scratch by the skilled confectioner Helle Kleist, inspired by pastries and cakes from Rahbek’s time.
