The Best Beer in the World
One of Denmark’s most famous exports, Carlsberg’s Old Brewery in Valby, in the north of the city offers a great experience for visits and events alike!

A tour of the brewery building takes you through the process and discover the iconic advertising of the ‘best beer in the world’ whilst you enjoy a sample, or two! The unique displays and interactive exhibitions take you on a trip through the world’s largest collection of beer bottles, the history of beer, and the Carlsberg development.
