Attraction

Tivoli Gardens

Vesterbrogade 3, Copenhagen, 1630

Denmark’s most famous amusement park (and the second oldest amusement park in the world) and city gardens are located just a short stroll from the city hall in central Copenhagen. Free for kids 7 and under, the park is home to a host of attractions that include Tivoli’s famous wooden rollercoaster and rides, like the Ferris wheel and dragon boats. The gardens themselves are spectacular for strolling with flowering plants and even a Japanese tower to ogle. There are many restaurants located within Tivoli, too, and you’ll find everything from the Danish sandwiches called smorrebrod to Italian and Japanese food and good old-fashioned American hamburgers on offer. There are fireworks every Saturday night, live music every day and big-name Danish and international concerts regularly scheduled here during the summer months. The Gardens are open from mid-April through late-September. Admission is 99 DKK ($18) for children and adults 8 and older and are free for children under 7.
