Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen

4.2
#1 of 405 in Parks in Denmark
Set some time aside for fun and games at Tivoli Gardens, the second-oldest amusement park in the world. Established in 1843, the park sits in the heart of the city and offers not only traditional amusement rides and carnival games, but also flower gardens, food pavilions, and open-air shows. The most-visited amusement park in Scandinavia, this large venue attracts the majority of its visitors after dusk, when the lights come on and the area becomes one big stage for a range of cultural activities. Be sure to try a few roller coaster rides, but leave plenty of time for a show at the park's world-famous pantomime theater, built in the 1870s by celebrated architect Vilhelm Dahlerup.

  • This place is amazing, lines move quick and the price is right! The rides are long and worth waiting if there is a wait, but ride the swings.I recommend it to all.  more »
  • This is as good as the hype. We visited at Halloween and it was decorated so lavishly it was like a fairy tale. When you look on google maps it does not look very big, but once you are in it feels ver...  more »

  • Tivoli is not just an amusement park, it's something else. The park is in the centre of the city, completely embedded with multiple ways to enter and exit from it.The park evolves according to the different seasons and it has themes for Xmas, Halloween, summer... That are not just a light make up but really noticeable changes. The park is just beautiful. It's so beautiful that it's common just to go there for the views or to go to one of the cool restaurants inside. On the downside, it's expensive. The entrance ticket does not include any rides, and the rides cost is not bargain. To spend one day can be more expensive than one day in bigger and better theme parks that are famous all around the world.
  • Had a really great time in Tivoli during the Halloween Celebrations. The rides are very creative and a lot of fun. It took us a while to find them all even with the map though but then we had a blast on each one we went. Even rides that look more aimed towards kids are fun for adults too. Wonderful concept to have something like this in the middle of a city
  • Super fun. If I could rate it 6 stars, I would. The rides are very cool (the Demon with Virtual Reality is awesome also quite short). It was during Halloween and the atmosphere was very well transcribed, especially during the monster night out! And it's right in the middle of the city center!! Some rides give you an awesome view of the city. I was there at 11h and left at 23h. (If you go out, you have to pay a re entry fee and with the Copenhagen Card, only the entry is included).
  • Most amazing place - especially around Christmas time. Wonderfully decorated each time - beautiful to walk around a cold festive evening. Some of the rides are crazy! Positively Adrenalin filled experiences that look someone innocent as Tivoli lulls you into a false sense of security because everything is hugely friendly. Then you get on one of the large rides and immediately realize just before it sets off why it was a bad idea.
  • Walt Disney's inspiration, Tivoli opened in 1843 and is fun place to spend the day and night. Lot's to do in a relatively small park located in the city of Copenhagen. They have Disney like rides such as the Hans Christen Anderson ride which is similar to It's a Small World and then they have more modern amusement park thrill rides. This park has a little bit of something for everyone. It meticulously landscaped. Even if you don't go on rides it's enjoyable just walking around and viewing the gardens. They have stages set up for all types of shows. There is also a variety of restaurants to choose from. We went to a Coatian? buffet. Great deal and a good, hearty meal.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
