Hold a lavish arrangement right up close to the art of millennia. The Glyptotek’s rooms can act as the setting for everything from elegant gala dinners, award presentations and receptions to conferences, seminars and meetings of up to 700 guests.

After just a few minutes walk from Copenhagen Central Station you can pause for breath in the green oasis of the Winter Garden which will welcome your company in one of the city’s most beautiful cultural historical buildings. A visit to the Glyptotek’s collections can serve as an exclusive intermission in the course of a conference, and we are always happy to provide specially tailored guided tours or talks, which can be integrated in your particular event.
