Copenhagen has the oldest amusement park in the World, and it is called Tivoli gardens. If you think fairground rides, candy floss and roller coasters you are right, but Tivoli gardens is soo much more.
When I was a child, Tivoli was only open in the summer season; from April – October, and I remember it as a magic place where you came, once a year, for a very special day out. I remember all the bright lights, the hyggelige ambience and the many different foreign smells – candy floss, gunpowder, sweet nuts, waffles and tyres burning in the bumper cars. Today it is still magic, and one of our favourite places to go as a family.
If you’re planning to come to Copenhagen, I would thoroughly recommend a trip to Tivoli, an unforgettable experience for adults and children alike, and one of the most hyggelige places to visit all year round.
