In the Carlsberg Foundation, ambitious brewing enterprise blossoms side by side with research and support for the finest science, art and culture.
The New Carlsberg Foundation is a pillar of the Danish arts, working to promote, enhance and develop art, the appreciation of art and the desire for art in Denmark.
Since its founding in 1931, the Tuborg Foundation has supported a diverse range of initiatives across Denmark within the areas of music, culture, sport, education and industry. The Foundation was created with the objective of supporting associations and projects that bring people together in new ways and build bridges between civil society and industry.
Over the years, the Carlsberg Research Laboratory has delivered ground-breaking research, revolutionising modern brewing. It was in the laboratory on Valby Hill that pure yeast was first cultured and the pH scale invented. More recently, researchers have developed the null-LOX barley sort, which gives beer greatly increased freshness and an improved, more stable head.
When Frederiksborg Caste was ravaged by fire in 1859, J.C. Jacobsen took the lead in the work to rebuild the former royal residence. When Frederiksberg Castle opened to the public in 1882, J.C. Jacobsen turned over the Museum of National History to the Carlsberg Foundation.
Carl Jacobsen placed himself in the service of art, which is why he opened his impressive collection of works of art to the public. He called it "Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek", and today it is an internationally reowned museum and part of the Carlsberg Foundation.
