Copenhagen, Denmark: Tivoli Gardens

published 9 years ago by Rick Steves

Europe's most famous amusement park is Tivoli Gardens, an ideal place since 1843 to see Danes at play. One admission price lets you lose yourself in a Hans Christian Andersen wonderland of rides, restaurants, games, marching bands, roulette wheels, and funny mirrors. By day it's a children's fantasyland, but as night falls Tivoli becomes more adult-oriented. Day or night, with or without kids, the cozy confines of Tivoli are a true magic kingdom.
