Great place

The French impressionist art collection is world class. Stunning. Also the Greek, Roman and Egyptian collection is not to be missed. The museum itself is a work of art. Go there!

A must-go for french impressionist art lovers. When I went, it was the last day of special exhibition of Paul Gauguin, which was absolutely stunning. It also had a good number of paintings by corosot, monet, sisley, morisot. I didn't look at other parts of the museum because I am not a big fan of scultutes and ancient art but... More

Great collection of sculptures, paintings and ancient artifacts, in a beautiful building. Walk amongst Degas' bronzes and sculptures by Rodin. So calm and well laid out.

My Boyfriend and I just spent a 3 days walking around and visiting as many places as we could. We had met 2 Danish guys who told us about this place. We were excited and the place does not let you down. Multiple levels and collections. Even a rooftop terrace to see the city and have a coffee, tea, and/or... More

There is a lovely atrium in the central area of the museum that makes a great respite if you need a break.

This museum is based on what was once the Carlsberg collection. There are a wide range of artefacts, including Egyptian, classical and Etruscan objects. There is also a fine collection of French 19 C paintings. There is a charming glassed dome orangery space in the centre with a pleasant cafe and places to sit. I recommend visiting on a Tuesday...

Visited here on a Tuesday which was great as it is free entry on Tuesdays! Beautiful building, especially the winter garden area. The variety of sculptures in the collection is stunning and is well laid out between rooms, it is heaven for anyone who is into classical cultures. If you are visiting be aware that they do not allow buggies... More

It is an awesome place where art is predominant. From really old sculptures and paintings to modern exhibits and even special exhibits every once in a while. The closed garden right after you come in is really nice as well and you can also visit the rooftop. If you go there on a Tuesday, the entrance is free.

Free on Tuesdays, but well worth the admission. The artwork collection is extensive and the special exhibitions (like Gauguin) are fantastic...

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is the result of one man’s passion for art. The brewer Carl Jacobsen, the son of J.C. Jacobsen who founded the Carlsberg Brewery, was a major fan of the ancient art from the Greek and Roman empires. He started building the Old Carlsberg Glyptotek as his private house couldn’t contain his collection. In 1882 the collection was... More

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.
