Denmark’s most famous brewing family once lived in an industrial district with green copper roofs and beautiful details – the place was called Carlsberg. Today the former industrial buildings have been given new life, and are intermingled with modern buildings, climate-resilient solutions and high-rises.
Carlsberg has all the elements of a great story: a dramatic family saga, entrepreneurship, plenty of capital, and an irrepressible faith in the future. Combined with their sense of quality, art and architecture, the Jacobsen brewing family has left a big mark on Copenhagen – and the world.
Today, Carlsberg is no longer an industrial district, but an urban district in its own right. Some buildings have been demolished, some have been preserved, and others have been transformed and reused.
Together, they form a unique city district in the spirit of a real Copenhagen story.
