“Mustsee on your stay in Copenhagen”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Hidden kultural gems, love eatery and garden, great view from the roof and free on sundays! Best on a rainy day as all indoor attractions, but don't pass it up even if the weather is nice.

“Amazing mysterious museum, with great beer.”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We had a meeting with a client, and as an icebreaker they had invited us to an event at the Glyptotek. The Glyptotek is a first rate museum, with a beautiful winter garden and wonderful artefacts from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. The Glyptotek was build by the man who brought us the Carlsberg Breweries. Apparently he didn't just have great taste in beer, but also in art. The event was a so-called "mystery", an ingeniously orchestrated mixture of treasure hunting, puzzlesolving and coaching. Afterwards we had a Carlsberg, and drank a "skål" to the old master brewer.
