The independent art and cultural centre Rønnebæksholm is housed in the main building of the manor Rønnebæksholm Gods, one of the most impressive buildings in the Næsted area. The Municipality of Næstved acquired the area in 1998 and, following the extensive refurbishment of the main building, the centre opened in 2002; it has already distinguished itself as an exciting and attractive exhibition venue. Changing art exhibitions are put on throughout the year. The art exhibitions are supplemented with music events, talks and theatrical performances - both indoors and outdoors.
The pavilion in the park, known as "Venligheden" (Kindness), is of considerable historic interest. Marie Toft had it built for her husband N.F.S. Grundtvig so he could find peace to write and, not least, smoke his pipe. They married in 1851 and it is called Grundtvig's happiest marriage. Sadly, their time at Rønnebæksholm was short-lived as Marie Toft died shortly after giving birth to their son in 1854.
The Rønnebæksholm art and cultural centre lies just outside Næstved and is well worth a visit. Information about exhibitions and events taking place can be seen on the website or is available from the tourist office in Næstved.
