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. Make Visit Carlsberg part of your personalized Copenhagen itinerary using our Copenhagen trip itinerary maker.

    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 »

    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 :)

    Interesting and fun. It's not a working brewery (obviously) but those nice people at Carlsberg have put together some interesting and entertaining information about the company and it's history. You even get to walk through the stables and sample some free beer!

    Complete RIP-OFF! Do NOT go there! It is not worth your money at all. It is NO BREWERY only a self guided tour along some pictures in an old house. Don't buy the expensive admission ticket since no one checks whether you have a ticket or not! And don't even think about booking a guided tour - it is a joke! The guide didn't know the name of the founder so we had to remind her of it! Besides it does not say on the website that it is an OUTSIDE tour so don't come here on a RAINY DAY! Don't come here at all. You get a free beer and a cheap free gift which is an ugly pin no one needs.

    The self-guided tour goes into the history of beer-making, and the brewery (and company) history. I found that to be way too boring, and hoped they might elaborate more on the actual beer making side of things. For me, compared to other brewery tours, it wasn't as good as the Guinness or Heineken ones. The complimentary beer (or two if you decide not to go for some gold coloured pin) included in the tour was a welcome change and it was really good and served very cold. But then again, you could just have the beer at a bar at a more convenient location (like any other bar around the corner and most likely, better? Just saying...)

    Great experience - the guided tour and beer tasting are highly recommended. And lunch was delicious! It's great being able to watch the beer getting bottled & packed while you enjoy top-notch food.

    Ive done some of the best distillery/brewery tours around and this stacks up well. Easy to find and navigate and the information was of a decent level. Not quite as good as the Guinness tour in Dublin but not bad! Great little bar and gift shop at the end which definitely adds to the experience.

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.
