Since the Carlsberg area was opened to the public in 2009 it has provided the framework for many different activities and for people of all ages. When moving around the area today, one may notice that a whole new part of the city is being created in the middle of Copenhagen. In between the new buildings, however, the old buildings are still standing proud as a witness of what the place used to be.
With this audio guide we are putting focus on some of the many stories that the area holds. The stories are a result of conversations with several generations of brewery workers, as well as with the help of archivists, janitors and other prominent personalities that have been or still are a part of the area.
For example you may hear about The Bottle Cap Attic and its nook and crannies, The String Mans achievements, what the water level in a lake has to do with going on strike, and you will also get an idea of what the subterranean beer world is hiding.
We would like to thank the former brewery workers and others associated with Carlsberg that have vividly shared their experiences.
‘Brewed Stories’ is developed and produced by Rikke Vagner and Eva Kinch Brøndsted, whom together run the agency Ordered by Colour.
