A terrific old brewery and as good a brewery tour as you’ll find. Paid a visit during my trip to Denmark in 2008.

If you happen to be visiting this place anyway be sure to get a bottle or two of the Jacobsen Limited Edition Mermaid Porter as it is only available here from the gift shop and by mail order otherwise. If you are in Copenhagen and haven’t decided whether or not to go then don’t bother unless you have plenty of time on hand. The beer itself is not worth your while.

As Carlsberg beers aren’t worth drinking, this isn’t really a place for good beer (although some Jacobsen brews are quite OK) but for beer history and architecture. The museum is really interesting and the architecture, especially the elephant gate outside the visitors centre, is really worth seeing. But if you are in a city like Copenhagen, this should be one of the last beer places to visit, as this city offers amazing locations! I once was there in a time when I wasn’t that much into beer, so I would only recommend this for beer "beginners".

A bit boring to visit but the grounds and brewery area are very interesting. I was in the area for Copenhagen beer festival. The Carlsberg beer on tap is sufficient if you need a beer but go elsewhere. Gift shop was boring...

Lots of old stuff - as in wood, copper and hay. Awful beers on tap. A few Jacobsen Limited Releases to be bought in the giftshop. Meh...

I saw this place with my Copenhagen card so it was free but after hearing good things I was kind of disappointed. The stables are nice, the buildings a cool old brewery but the displays where fairly simple(though the massive old equipment was impressive). The bottle collection was glassed in so you couldn’t actually wander the aisles to see all of them plus they were mostly Carlsberg/Tuborg so now that special. The free beers are only draft, so the selection is limited but bottles to go from the gift shop seemed cheap though not all that appetizing & the rest of the stuff was their usually free promo material for sale so what’s the point?

Väl värt ett besök! Mycket informativt och en hel del kul från Carlsbergs och ölbryggningens historia. Flasksamlingen var häftig med några riktigt tunga rariteter och lite nostalgitripp. Testade aldrig maten med det doftade lovande på innergården. En souvenirbutik som hade lite prylar. Prisvärt besök, speciellt eftersom vi plankade in.

Being from Belgium, I visited a lot of breweries, and I never came across such an interesting and well accomodated visitor centre. a Must DO when in Copenhagen.

Must say we had a little luck on this tour. But first the bad news - The entry is overpriced! Interesting to view the old bottles which can give you some ideas what to try one day. The tour we had was a standard one but since noone else turned up we ended up 3 people and that enabled us that we saw a bit more than the rather standard stuff most tourist can see. So that was a good experience. Selection in the bar was ok but then again for such an expensive entry I expect to be allowed to try at least any beer on display for free and be it only one thus my rating under "selection".

Yawn! You pay 10€ and You are allowed to have a short look at the brewery’s history, to have a short look at thousands of old dusty beer bottles and to see Carlsberg’s heavy horses in their stables. In the end, before You can buy not necessary souvenirs at the shop, You’ll get two pretty horrible beers "for free". There are better places in wonderful Copenhagen…
