Tivoli Gardens

This action-packed amusement park in the heart of Copenhagen is a great destination for families. It is one of the oldest theme parks in the world.

Denmark is home to two of the oldest amusement parks in the world and one is located right in the center of the capital. Since opening its doors in 1843, Tivoli Gardens has been cherished by the locals and enjoyed by visitors to Copenhagen. More than just a theme park, Tivoli Gardens hosts live music every day across a number of venues and is home to some of the city’s best restaurants.

Tivoli Gardens welcomes over 4 million guests every year. It is a great family destination with attractions that cater to all ages. For many visitors who arrive in Copenhagen by train, Tivoli Gardens is the first attraction they see as roller coasters pass above Central Station. 

Jump aboard one of Tivoli Gardens’ roller coasters for a thrilling experience. The rides at Tivoli range from traditional wooden roller coasters and carousels to modern interpretations of the classics. The Demon reaches speeds of over 40 miles (70 kilometers) per hour. Enjoy unequaled views of the city from the top of the Himmelskibet (StarFlyer), one of the tallest carousels in the world.

Stroll around the 8.5 hectares (21 acres) of landscaped gardens that tie the park together. By night, over 100,000 custom-designed lights illuminate the paths and trees. Enjoy a dragon boat cruise on the lake in the center of the site, or take a seat in one of the waterfront bars and restaurants. The best known place for fine dining is Noma, which has been praised internationally and is known for its innovative dishes based on traditional Nordic food.

Tivoli Gardens is located in central Copenhagen and can be reached by bike or on foot from many downtown hotels. The central train station is located next door and some street parking is available in the area. Tivoli is open daily from April to September, but only for limited times during the rest of the year. There is an admission fee.
