Built in 1761, the house was restored to its former glory in the 1990s and converted into a regional centre for the arts. The bottom floor became the permanent home for the collections of German-Jewish artist, teacher and TV personality Kurt Harald Isenstein, who fled to Denmark in the 1930s. Educated at Berlin’s Academy of Arts, he
became acquainted with characters such as Einstein, with whom he played the violin, and one of Isenstein’s most famous works is the Einstein bust now at the Einstein centre in Potsdam. Later well-known works include his Niels Bohr and Queen Margrethe depictions.
