  • Fortress here is expressed as the percentage of alcohol, and vnushitel'nosti the building. Beer the Danes in the blood. And consumption and cooking it is a centuries-old tradition that you can see and taste! The review begins with a collection of different brands of bottles from different countries, including Russia. Later in different halls you can see the stages of production of beer, get acquainted with the history, view your old appliances, including auto Ford t, mingle with horses, stroll through the little park statues, buy souvenirs and drink famous beer of course! Close to Tivoli Gardens, there are special bus stop (branded livery), which will free you up to Visit Carsberg. Tickets can be purchased directly on the bus paying by credit card. Sent it back 3 times a day, at noon, an hour and a 2:00 day. The return journey through 20 minutes. The cost of the visit of 95 kroner. Two drinks included in the price. Recommend them for a drink in a nice atmosphere of the bar of the beautiful glasses, looking at the pipeline process rather than at the gift shop. Yes! And do not forget to change your check for payment on the map of the Museum and coupons for free drinks.

  • Just a place to spend a couple of hours, In summer, probably, more lovely. You get the tour, you learn hoe it's done, you try the taste! 2 hours will serve you till you get to the bar. Enjoy the lunch...  more »
  • Very disappointed with this Carlsberg experience! We walked the 40 minutes from Tivoli to here, it was an easy walk but disappointed with Carlsberg. We had prebooked our tickets which made no differen...  more »

  • 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.
