Is Carlsberg Street Art in Copenhagen?

Carlsberg’s HQ lives in Copenhagen and after more than 150 years of service, I wasn’t surprised to see curling green “Cs” illuminated across the city.

What did surprise me, though, was this unusual find in the midst of Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District. Was it street art? Was it an elaborate hangover from the night before? Was it supposed to be promotional?

Who knows? I just enjoyed the deep racing green of Copenhagen in all its fermented glory…

    Ahhh I just did a Denmark Photo Friday, too! These photos of yours make me miss it like crazy. Husband and I lived there about eight months in 2006. Lovely country (though cold)!

    @Camels & Chocolate – Ooh, interesting. I was only there for less than a week so I didn’t get a feel for anything outside Copenhagen, unfortunately.

    @Greg…Maybe. It’d be interesting to see if it’s still there!

    Hi Abi, this is Garlando and we are the manufacturers of the football table (back in 2007 or 2008)! It came to Denmark thanks to our Importer, Soren Sogaard from Vejle. Anyway, it was quite an impression to discover that you had judged it worth of photographing … and such nice shots…it looks great… thank you for choosing it as a subject

      Ah, what a small world! So glad you found this site and answered the question – the green looked so striking in the midst of winter. Brilliant stuff.
