Many things can come out of beer, and this one may be the most memorable. The founders of the famous Danish brewery left behind what’s just called Glyptoteket in daily speak. Probably the Best Museum in Copenhagen.

The awe-inspiring setting and interiors are half the charm but its hieroglyphic sounding name may make more sense when you take a tour around the great Egyptian section at this museum dedicated to ancient art. An impressive collection of statues, mummys, paintings and tomb treasures are on display here, as well as expansive exhibits on the The Near East, Greece (check out the colonnaded marble Central Hall), Ancient Mediterranean and Imperial Rome.

Modern art does come into play via the Impressionists, Gauguin and Rodin in a collection of French and Danish art from the 19th and 20th century. All of the four main buildings lead to the beautiful central Winter Garden with a soaring dome, tropical plants and Café Glyptoteket, which serves up delectable goodies and, of course, cold lager.
