Visit Carlsberg, Copenhagen

3.6
Have a glass of beer with your history lesson at Visit Carlsberg. On the site of the original brewery founded in 1847 by industrialist J.C. Jacobsen, the visitor center is one of the city's major tourist attractions. Book a private guide to show you the city's blend of history, beer, and architecture. You can also explore the old brewery on your own, starting at the center's ticket store. From there, proceed along the designated route to see the biggest collection of unopened beer bottles in the world, as well as a sculpture garden featuring a small replica of the famous mermaid sculpture Jacobsen donated to his city. Each entry ticket includes a complimentary drink at the on-site bar. To visit Visit Carlsberg on your trip to Copenhagen, use our Copenhagen online itinerary planner .

  • Not much to see and the beer tastes awful! Not worth the bus journey or the entrance fee. Also there is nothing vegetarian to eat apart from crisps!  more »
  • Interesting more for history buffs of industry and work that for fans of beer!! For that much better one of microbreweries in the Center

  • It is a normal Museum, I mean if you're curious by beer as you enjoy it more than I. I saw him a little expensive but you get two beers :)

  • We went there on a Friday eve for the usual "night at the brewery" event. Tried several brews, best was the brown ale for me. A big, light hall full of tables, resembles of a German pub, live DJ, mostly young crowd. A simple but fun exhibition of the smells of different characters of beer on site, friendly service but we were too late for the food. The location is a bit difficult to approach, don't be fooled by the maps, take the bridge at the bus stop, not the one closest to the site. A good Friday eve activity, a local touch.
  • We did the tour which cost DK100. You get a 'free' beer and gift (which you can exchange for another beer if you like) The museum is all about the history of Carlsberg rather than actual beer making. The setting is very pretty. On a nice day you can sit outside and enjoy your beer. We also had a free 15 minute horse ride. You can visit the bar and outside area for free and then just pay for your beer if you prefer.
  • The museum is great, it has lots if interesting information on the story of the brand. I would have enjoyed if there were more about the technical details of the early stage of the factory, though.
  • We went as soon as it opened as we had Copenhagen pass we wanted to use up last couple of hours. The tour itself alone was not so entertaining more emphasis is on history than process of making Carlsberg itself. What was the most enjoyable part was the horses, and the beer garden outside was really nice and the give you one beer to sample. There is also Rose wine, Cider and soft drinks for those who don't drink alcohol
  • Tour experience could be better..two free half pint beers redeemed with tokens. Able to purchase additional beer. Something to do whilst in Copenhagen

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
