We all have places that have shaped our history, and Tuborg is no different. Take the Tuborg tour to explore the sites that carry a special meaning to us.
1. Start at the Tuborg Harbour
Where the red and the green bottles mark the exit of the harbor to the sea. That’s where our story begins, and that’s where Tuborg began as well. When Philip W. Heyman founded Tuborg, he founded it on the harbour, overlooking the world. Ready to explore. Open to more.
Address: Tuborg Havn, Hellerup
2. Marvel at the old Tuborg Brewery
Our next stop is a symbol that most Copenhageners know as the entrance to the suburb of Hellerup: The old Tuborg Brewery with the huge Tuborg sign mounted upon it. If you have the time, also take a look at the adjacent wall commemorating the story of Tuborg.
Address: Strandvejen 58, 2900 Hellerup
3. Feel small next to the Giant Bottle
For the World exhibition in 1888, we built a giant bottle that doubled as an escalator. Our founder Philip W. Heyman had a knack for marketing, and the giant Tuborg bottle certainly did the trick. The bottle is 26 meters tall and placed very close to the brewery, not far from its original placement in 1888.
Address: Dessaus Blvd. 4, 2900 Hellerup
Next stop: Music!
Music has always been at the heart of everything Tuborg. We’ve picked three great venues for you to take a closer look at. Enjoy!
4. Feel the vibe at Vega
Located in the heart of stylish Vesterbro, Vega is one of the most legendary nightclubs and venues in Copenhagen. Thousands of international and local acts have played here over the years. Vega recently celebrated its 20th birthday and we didn’t turn up empty-handed. By means of a birthday gift, the Tuborg Foundation pitched in for a new sound system, pleasuring eardrums for the years to come.
Address: Enghavevej 40, 1674 København
5. Go underground at Rust
Ever since opening its doors in 1990, Rust has been a hotspot for the local underground bands. The little venue in the heart of vibrant Nørrebro has seen quite a few DJs, bands and international artist form all over the world. Tuborg has helped the artist sound even better by adding a new sound system to the proceedings.
Address: Guldbergsgade 8, 2200 København
6. Dance the night away at Amager Bio
We’re taking a little detour to the Copenhagen island of Amager. To a place where death metal, streamlined pop and fun funk all live side by side. Together with the venue called 5øren, Amager Bio feature over 100 different concerts and events every year. Oh, and the sound system? Courtesy of Tuborg.
Address: Øresundsvej 6, 2300 København
Final stop: Dive bars!
After some great live music, you’re ready to hit the town and enjoy a cold Tuborg at one of the great dive bars Copenhagen has to offer. But which one? Don’t worry, we’ll guide you!
7. Have a pint at Hviids Vinstue
Founded in 1723, Hviids Vinstue is a legendary place for telling tall tales over an even taller pint… of Tuborg, of course. The bar is very close to Nyhavn and Kongens Nytorv, which are must-sees when you explore Copenhagen.
Address: Kongens Nytorv 19, 1050 København
8. Have one more at Det Hvide Lam
Now, it’s time to move a little closer to the trendier parts of Copenhagen. Det Hvide Lam is very centrally placed and is a great next stop on our tour. If you’re lucky, you can enjoy some great live jazz along with your Tuborg beer.
Address: Kultorvet 5, 1175 København
9. Make the night peak at Wessels Kro
A legendary hotspot for Copenhagen nightlife, Wessels Kro is the perfect place when you’re ready to make the night peak. Full of life, fun and friendly Copenhageners. Also try to visit some of the adjacent bars or restaurants if you’re up for a late-night snack.
Address: Sværtegade 7, 1118 København
10. End the party at Palæ Bar
We end the night at the perfect place: Palæ Bar. A legendary Copenhagen dive bar if there ever was one, this is an old-fashioned bar at the heart of Copenhagen. This place is full of class, charm, atmosphere and a whole lot of vintage Tuborg ads that take you t.
Address: Ny Adelgade 5, 1104 København
