House in the Carlsberg Brewery neighborhood

valby carlsberg denmark house

After Niels Bohr won the Nobel Prize in 1922, the Carlsberg Brewery gave him a gift. The gift was a house located near the brewery with a direct pipeline to the brewery so that Bohr had free beer on tap whenever he wanted.

This house probably wasn’t Bohr’s house, but it is in that neighborhood. There are some amazing houses in this neighborhood (between the Carlsberg and Valby Stations on the north side of the tracks). I rode my bike through this neighborhood at least once a day this past summer as my apartment was next to this location.

Administration building interior @ University of Copenhagen

University of Copenhagen

As mentioned previously, the private tour of the campus of the University of Copenhagen was rather special.

The building pictured today was the home of the Zoological Museum from 1870 until 1967. Since then it has been an administration building for the university. If you look closely you can see some of the sculptures that have been part of the architecture for 150 years.

I’ll post more photos of this beautiful place (especially since the public is no longer allowed to enter) soon. Here is what it looked like in 1868 before opening.

Yesterday was my last day teaching in Copenhagen for this summer. It’s always a sad day when I finish up in the summer in Denmark. The students at Copenhagen Business School are excellent (ranking in the top five in Europe and top 15 worldwide).

That said, the people of Denmark are what make my experience here so special. I have met so many wonderful people, this year in particular, at festivals and on other occasions. A new friend, who I met at the Roskilde Festival, gave me a private tour of the University of Copenhagen (on the campus near the Church of Our Lady in Central Copenhagen) yesterday. Previously, you could wander the campus as a regular tourist. However, due to thefts they have now locked most of the passages.
