Whether you are in Copenhagen for the 1st or 10th time, Tivoli Gardens is a must-visit destination, particularly if you are traveling with kids. The beautiful amusement park is the second oldest in the world and is packed with attractions for the whole family to enjoy. It is open for three main seasons of the year: summer, Halloween, and Christmas, and has seasonally themed events and decorations. Tivoli is part of the heart of downtown Copenhagen, and you can't miss its tall ride towers lit up across the city.
Enjoy a fun-filled family day
More than four million visitors head to Tivoli Gardens each year for a fantastic day out, full of experiences and fun. The park's ride options include high-adrenaline adventures for thrill-seekers, like the Demon roller coaster, which even offers a virtual reality option, and the Golden Tower, a 63-meter plummet to the ground. There are also plenty of fairground classics like bumper cars and a Ferris wheel. Tivoli also boasts one of the oldest running wooden roller coasters in the world where you still ride along with a brakeman! The vintage cars are also a popular ride, where kids can steer their own old-fashioned car. Young children are also well catered to with a range of rides designed just for them.
Entertainment for all
If rides are not your thing, you will still find plenty to see and do at this charming park. Watch a traditional performance at the Pantomime Theatre, take a stroll through the stunning flower gardens, have a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants and food stands, listen to the Tivoli Youth Guard, or enjoy a concert at the Glass Hall Theatre.
The park goes all out for holiday decorations. Whether it's crooked spiderweb-filled stands for Halloween or massive Christmas tree displays for the winter holidays, you'll get fully immersed in the spirit of the season. During Christmas you can take in the wonderful atmosphere at the park's Christmas market and light displays or go ice skating in front of the beautiful Nimb building. Halloween offers special events such as the Danish Giant Pumpkin Championship, the Monsters Night Out, and even a haunted house to walk through. In recent years, Tivoli has opened for extra seasons, including winter (a winter wonderland for the month of February), and Easter (part of the official summer season, but with special decorations, stalls, menus, and more).
