In the middle of Copenhagen, sandwiched between City Hall and the Central Station lies one of the magical gems in the world. Tivoli Gardens is an entire, modern amusement park set in one of the most charming settings imaginable. There are so many reasons why we love living in Copenhagen, but Tivoli might top the list.
While the park is over 175 years old, the rides remain modern and thrilling. With a lack of space, the park offer vertical thrills like a drop tower and a swings that fly 80 meters (260 feet) above the city. But even the older rides, like a century-old wooden roller coaster, provide a wonderful mix of fun and nostalgia.
The best time to visit is in the evening. First you will see the park in daylight, and then it will transform into an illuminated wonder in the evening. Fridays in the summer can be quite crowded, as they offer “Fredagsrock,” weekly concerts from both Danish and some international artists. Saturdays offer a fireworks show, and Mondays can be busier as this is one of the few attractions open.
