Long Description:
Portvagtens tårn ved den nordvestlige side af Carlsberg Bryggeri. Opført i 1905. Det smukt dekorerede tårn er tegnet af arkitekten Hack Kampmann.
En frise rundt tårnet med gedekranier og grønne bladranker som hænger i gedernes horn. Det har ikke været muligt at finde oplysninger om disse dekorationer.
Brygger Carl Jakobsens villa på Ny Carlsberg ligger ved siden af. Alle bygninger på Carlsberg har overdådige udsmykninger som er helt usædvanlige for danske industribygninger. Det fortæller at bryggeriet var en god forretning, hvor man havde råd til ekstravagant byggeri.




The gatekeeper's tower on the northwest side of Carlsberg Brewery. Built in 1905. The beautifully decorated tower was designed by the architect Hack Kampmann.
A frieze around the tower with goat skulls and green leaf vines hanging in the goats' horns. It has not been possible to find information about these decorations.
Brewer Carl Jakobsen's villa on Ny Carlsberg is next door. All buildings at Carlsberg have sumptuous decorations that are completely unusual for Danish industrial buildings. It tells that the brewery was a good business where one could afford extravagant construction.
