After meetings, events and the Trends & Traditions fair I stayed another night in Copenhagen and spent my Saturday there. Having some time off in one of my favorite cities before heading home to Oslo were so nice. Doing nothing but walking around with the camera in my hand and visiting some places I had yet not seen. I already knew from photos the Glyptotek looked amazing, but what a feeling walking around in both the garden and the impressive museum buildings with the ancient sculptures.
The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek was opened in 1897, and thereafter expanded with several buildings and a winter garden. The collection of ancient sculptures and 19.th century art was donated to the Danish state and the city of Copenhagen by Carl Jacobsen. Today theres a really beautiful cafe in the winter garden and a book shop as well, both worth a visit after a walk through the museum. The Glyptotek is located at Dantes Plads 7, near the City Hall and the Tivoli.
I was recommended Admiralgade 26 for lunch, and when the locals recommend something it´s usually good. Both super nice atmosphere and delicious food. The restaurant is furnished with pieces from Kaare Klint, Alvar Aalto, Jean Prouvé and Gio Ponti, a beutiful and eclectic mix in the building dated 1796. Located at Admiralgade 26, a short walk from Amagertorg.
