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.

Parco giochi molto grande e caratteristico. Occorre una giornata piena per goderlo in relax. Speciale per bambini piccoli sembra fiabesco more »Very large and quaint playground. It takes a full day to enjoy it in relax. Special for small children looks fairytale

So much to see and do packed into quite a small area. We had a brilliant time overall. Rides are fantastic and there was a relaxed and fun atmosphere in the park. Staff are very friendly and queue times were short. Some great performances as well which we weren't really expecting. Park was clean and tidy. Only criticism is the price is a little high and some areas were looking a little tired. My advice is going later and wait for the lights to come on. Then it all makes sense. Very beautiful in the dark! Stay for the illumination show on the lake 2245. A must visit on Copenhagen.
This is one of the best amusement parks I've ever been to. Possibly because it's old-fashioned which means Charming, lots of fun games and rides. The gardens are stunning with some flowers in the shape of balls. At night time the lights come on and it becomes even more magical. They also had great places to eat like a Joe & The Juice. We bought the pass with unlimited rides. A little expensive but worth it. Kids surprisingly loved a bunch of the older rides. Beautiful place I must if you're visiting Copenhagen.
