There’s no secret to why 4.6 million people visited Tivoli Gardens last year. Its magical blend of beauty, charm and thrills means everyone from young children to senior citizens will enjoy the 17 rides, 13 shops and 46 restaurants in Copenhagen’s classic theme park.
Just a stone’s throw from Copenhagen Central Station, Tivoli should be at the heart of every visit to the city. Thrill seekers can enjoy Tivoli’s four roller coasters, including Rutschebanen, one of the world’s oldest roller coasters, while the more relaxed visitor can take in the gardens frequented by H.C. Andersen and Walt Disney.
You can even stay in the park, at Nimb, a 5 star boutique hotel dominating the gardens (pictured below). Or for those not quite that lucky, you can at least eat at one of its four gourmet restaurants.
And at the end of a day absorbing the unique atmosphere, the perfect evening is topped off by a truly spectacular fireworks display over the lake.
