What is it? A world-renowned art and sculpture museum in central Copenhagen Carl Jacobsen’s private works from 1842-1914.
Why go? Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is one of Copenhagen’s most treasured museums, found right at the heart of the city. It’s been open to the public since 1897, and is renowned for its extensive collections of Mediterranean antiques and 19th century art (among the biggest collections in the world). Exhibitions range from Ancient Egypt to the works of Manet and van Gogh, as well as sculpture from Greece, Denmark and France. But come for the art, and stay for the ambience – outside is a glass-domed Winter Garden, adorned with palm trees, statues and a trickling fountain.
