  • Having visited many distilleries and breweries, one aspect I really enjoyed with Carlsberg was that they left it to you do to as much or as little as you wanted. Tours can be self-guided or guided and having done both there really is no "wrong" way to experience the facility, making it perfect for those with a tight schedule or with an otherwise limited interest in the brewery's history or brewing in general. For everyone else, there is plenty to dive into.
  • I would recommend everyone, especially to home brewers the visit to the old Carlsberg factory. Besides, with the ticket which is approximately 10€, you have two beers included. Taking into account the cost of the beer in a bar in Copenhagen, the ticket is just the price of the two drinks!
  • Really interesting museum and tour telling the history of beer in general and Carlsberg in particular. Highlight: workers in the 1900s who were late or made mistakes had to pay fines directly to the children's orphanage. Choice of free beers (2 x 0.25l) is very good.
  • a little bit outside the town, not a must do, if you ever been to the heineken brewery in amsterdam, its not worth visiting, you pay about 12 € and can walk around the carlsberg brewery and get 2 small beers included, the tour takes half an hour / hour,
  • I went here as part of the Copenhagen card deal and I really enjoyed it. Anytime you can drink beer at a museum is a good time. I went near the end of the day on a weekday and we had the entire museum to ourselves. They have a beautiful outdoor courtyard that is a great place to have a drink outside. The souvenirs in the gift shop are some of the most reasonably priced that I saw while in Copenhagen. Also if it is late and you want to score a free beer you can download and play their beer making game. The game is crap but if you're the only one on the leader list you can claim a free beer at the bar upstairs.
