Great tour well worth going ,make sure you do the beer tasting. The food is good here too, amazing unopened beer bottle collection. Stables with horses but it was too cold for the horses to be out . Sculpture collection in the grounds but it was too cold to hang about and besides there was beer to drink

Send a positive thought when you see locals drinking beer. They are the reason why Carlsberg amassed the capital to build this magnificent palace of arts. Even if youre not an art buff, its a soothing experience to visit this marble mansion full of ancient sculptures and other artefacts. Especially in bad weather or if youre tired of the hustle...

This is one of my favourite places in Copenhagen. The building itself is remarkable and the little palm garden inside it will take your breath away! I particularly loved the sculpture collection and the Egyptian exhibition - there are even a few mummies downstairs.

This is a must-visit Art museum for anyone travelling to Copenhagen. The collection, the building, the central covered garden/ courtyard, the staff and the entire ambiance is absolutely mind-blowing. And after you complete your Museum tour don't forget to stop by at the cafe and Museum store next to the garden. You will love it !

Must see when you are interested in art! Since located next to Tivoli you can decide what to prefer :-) Excellent permanent collection of French art among others. Great architecture with great central hall and open terrace on the roof. Great temporary exhibitions.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
