{Denmark} Café Glyptoteket

March 14, 2014


Back in January, I wrote about the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, and mentioned its impressive Winter Garden. I thought it was about time to follow up on my promise of sharing some photos of the winter garden. As you can see for yourselves, I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s stunning!

Surrounded by sub-tropical palms, it was easy to forget that we were in the rather cold and at times gloomy (if only in relation to the weather!) Denmark. The goldfish pond in particular was very popular with #MuseumBaby and many of the other kids at the museum that Sunday afternoon.

I’d first heard about the Winter Garden in a previous Twitter chat about museum cafés, in which it was referenced as a location for one of the museum cafés with the “most unique or amazing setting”. The café is tucked away on one side of the winter garden and isn’t actually very large – the tables basically run along the little ‘balcony’ on the right hand side of the photo below.

But luckily we didn’t have to wait very long for a table, and the food was fantastic . The café mainly uses organic and sustainable ingredients.I enjoyed some Danish meatballs with salad, pickles and remoulade, while the children’s meal had the salad substituted with vegetable sticks perfect for little hands, and a side dish of chocolate pudding. I definitely think #MuseumBaby got the better deal there!

You still need to pay admission to the museum, even if you are only going to the café, but the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek has free admission to all on Sundays, so it’s the perfect excuse to go there for Sunday lunch or afternoon tea
