An amusement park and leafy oasis in the heart of the city
Noteworthy for: Tivoli, or Vauxhall as it was called originally, was built by Georg Carstensen in 1843 and is the second oldest amusement park in the world.
Tivoli Gardens is one of the most famous places in Copenhagen, with 4.5 million visitors yearly. Here you can find everything from the latest rides and activities to garden areas, a lake, flower displays, fireworks, performances, restaurants and cafes. Every night at sunset, over 100,000 lanterns and lamps light up the fountains, plants, and old buildings in the garden, and twice a week there's a firework display.
If you like action-packed rides, 'The Demon' - Denmark’s largest roller-coaster, where the cars have no bottoms - is a must. For a blast of nostalgia, try the world’s oldest roller coaster, built in 1914.
If you're in Copenhagen in December, don't miss the Christmas Market (and the yummy apple slices with powdered sugar and jam).
