Wonderland in the middle of downtown Copenhagen
No other amusement park in the entire world is located as centrally as Tivoli. Simply put, the park is Copenhagen’s green heart of nearly 8 hectares between City Hall Square and Central Station. Stepping inside the impressive main gate is like entering a wonderland. Here you’ll find an enchanting park-like setting brimming with tradition and history and filled with super-modern amusements and activities. Tivoli is also home to gorgeous gardens, ancient trees and the Tivoli lake, a legacy from Copenhagen’s old city ramparts. When night falls, the fountains, flowers and old buildings in the Chinese garden are illuminated by 110,000 colourful lamps and lights. Twice a week, the entire amusement park is lit by a huge firework display.
Pantomime, rock and good food
The world-famous Tivoli is Denmark’s most popular amusement park with over 3 million visitors in the 5 months it is open each year. Traditional and free entertainments like Pierrot, Harlequin and Columbine, and the cabaret singers and Friday rock concerts at the Open Air Stage are on offer along with international artists in Glassalen and the Concert Hall. Many visitors also come to Tivoli to enjoy a good meal at one of Tivoli’s 21 restaurants and 20 cafés and bistros. Tivoli’s 70 food concessions include everything from hotdogs to homemade candies, candyfloss and roasted almonds.
Tivoli provides countless opportunities for fun, all the way from a cosy carousel ride for the little ones to a free fall from 60 metres high. Gear up for wild action on Denmark’s biggest rollercoaster (opens spring 2004) or relive your great-grandmother’s thrills and chills on one of the world’s oldest rollercoasters. Tivoli has enchanted its visitors for over 160 years and has served as a model for amusement parks all over the world - and has even been copied down to the smallest detail in Japan. But its charm and atmosphere cannot be copied: It must be experienced in the heart of downtown Copenhagen.
