A collection of sculptures doesn’t sound so inviting for you? Think twice! I would also visit the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in København if it would be completely empty – because already the fantastic staircases and the giant hall with palm trees in the centre of the building are simply amazing. Within you can find modern sculptures and antics from Greece and Rome and also some impressionist art – a wonderful combination.

The museum was opened in 1888 and the collection has been made possible by the owners of the Carlsberg brewery – that’s also the reason for the name. The museum is financed by a small fraction of what you pay for a bottle of Carlsberg beer. You can finance art by drinking beer, doesn’t sound too bad. 😉
