Tivoli Gardens (or simply Tivoli) is a famous amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen, Denmark. The park opened on August 15, 1843 and is the second oldest amusement park in the world, after Dyrehavsbakken in nearby Klampenborg. With 3.963 million visitors in 2011, Tivoli is the second most popular seasonal theme park in the world, the most visited theme park in Scandinavia and the fourth most visited in Europe, only behind Disneyland Paris, Europa-Park Rust and the Efteling.

My wife and I took our then 7 year old son, who is quite tall for his age, to the Tivoli Gardens in April 2005 and we found it a wonderful experience.
All things considered, my son and I were able to go on most rides as they are not too fast nor furious and once the entry ticket has been purchased, well, your away.
Safety is at a premium and the older rides provide the best thrills.
Night visits are a must and you can exit the park, have a nap or a beer for the gentlemen, and then return to enjoy the magic of the night.
Baken in the northern suburbs of Copenhagen is an essential visit for the oldest Theme Park in the world and set in such glourious parkland.
It's the best, just being there - walking around, looking at the lights and listening to the people is priceless..! It's absolutly first and formost for families. But there are a lot of other atractions in the park like concerts, ballet and stuff like that. So check out what's on when you're over there.
tivoli is friendly to all; unique in the world-after all you enter from the center of Copenhagen and RETURN there; sidewalk cafe-not a value but so much fun; friendly not abrupt staff; and old fashioned carnival rides like that are for all. Plus beautiful landscaping and benches like an old fashed park. sometimes Pollyanna is a place to go. go at night for the lights!
The atmosphere on a fine summer evening can be exeptionally good, but admittedly it can be a cold place on a windy evening. The lights, flowers, music is so relaxing, and compared to many other places in Europe the prices aren't that bad really.
It may not be a place for yuppies and older teenagers, but young children and their parents can have a really great time together.
our first impression was good. it looked very beautiful. entry fee was expensive but that was ok as we expected something special. once inside all we found was typical xmas merchandise which can be bought in so many retail outlets for a lot less, over priced rides which required one to buy tickets from a very non user friendly machine which was often located at the exit of the ride?? and were very short in duration, even though no-one else was waiting to get on. the only smile we saw from staff was from the lady at the front gate as she took our money. we have visited many parks all over the world this was by far the most dissapointing. we will visit copenhagen again but we will never again set foot inside the most corporate christmas sham show we have ever seen. .
Tivoli is a must for all visitors to Copenhagen. Even in tourist season, the park's atmosphere has something for everyone, whether you prefer a romantic stroll along the lake in the quiet northeastern side of the park, or the bustle of all the attractions in the southern end. Live music, kid's theater, acrobats, rock concert every Friday nigt, light show every day, and fireworks every Saturday are all free.
