Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

Founded by Carlsberg tycoon Carl Jacobsen, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is Copenhagen’s finest art gallery. There’s a knockout selection of Greek and Roman sculpture on the first floor as well as some excellent examples of modern European art, including Degas casts, Monet’s The Lemon Grove and works by Gauguin, Van Gogh and Danish Golden Age artists like Eckersberg upstairs. Wind up your visit with a slice of delicious cake in the café beside the delightfully domed winter garden.
