This was a disappointment. We were visiting the Christmas market, but it was a soulless thing that could have happened anywhere. Better to stay in the city centre. Even the souvenir shop was dull and boring, filled up with Carlsberg merchandise. The stable was charming though. Really nice horses, and the buildings are truly filled with atmosphere, so the place has potential. It's just poorly executed.

The Historical Tour was interesting, but the tour guide spoke a bit too quickly and there was absolutely no mention of the brewing process. In fact, there doesn't seem to be any option available for how their beer is made. HOWEVER, the Beer Tasting was extremely informative, and the guide was both knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. He customised the tasting to the interests of the group, and we actually left with extra beer in-hand! Be prepared to drink at least 2 pints per person. Overall, a pleasant experience.

Nice facilities. The tour was pleasant. The beer tasting was fun and Kian gave us a nice run though for the last time until the tours close for a year.

It was a unique experience for me to know about the history of Beer and understand the process of making the beer. I personally liked the area where they showcased beers from different countries around the world. Including a beer into the tour price was a great way to end the tour. Being a fan and a consumer of Carlsberg over the years, I could say for sure the freshly brewed beer I had during the tour was the best Carlsberg I ever had. Truly a wonderful experience.

I enjoyed the history of the beer and the well put together reenactments of older times at the brewery. The tour itself could have been a bit more exciting but we didn’t take a guided tour so it may be better that way. A beer is included in the tour price and was a great way to finish. Do know there is a lot of construction in the area though and it’s super confusing to get there as a pedestrian.

Montparnasse Cemetery

Montparnasse Cemetery was created from three farms in 1824. Cemeteries had been banned from Paris since the closure, owing to health concerns, of the Cimetière des Innocents in 1786. Several new cemeteries outside the precincts of the capital replaced all the internal Parisian ones in the early 19th century: Montmartre Cemetery in the north, Père Lachaise Cemetery in the east, and Montparnasse Cemetery in the south. At the heart of the city, and today sitting in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, is Passy Cemetery.

Montparnasse cemetery is the burial place of many of France's intellectual and artistic elite as well as publishers and others who promoted the works of authors and artists. There are also many graves of foreigners who have made France their home, as well as monuments to police and firefighters killed in the line of duty in the city of Paris.

The cemetery is divided by Rue Émile Richard. The small section is usually referred to as the small cemetery (petit cimetière) and the large section as the big cemetery (grand cimetière).

Although Baudelaire is buried in this cemetery (division 6), there is also a cenotaph to him (between division 26 and 27). Because of the many notable people buried there, it is a highly popular tourist attraction.
