The home of the famous Danish polar explorer and anthropologist, Knud Rasmussen at Hundested, Zealand, Denmark. (Knud Johan Victor Rasmussen (June 7, 1879 – December 21, 1933).

Situated high on the 30 m tall moraine cliff, Spodsbjerg, there is a fantastic view over the Kattegat Sea from the house. On clear days the island Hesselø 26 km away can be seen.To the left in the distance Knud Rasmussen's memorial rock cairn raised after his death by Greenland and South-Danish friends in 1936 of rocks from various places in Greenland related to Knud Rasmussen's journeys. Further left the 9 m tall Spodsbjerg Lighthouse on top of the cliff at the rough coast half-way to the small charming hamlet Kikhavn.
