Let loose at world-famous Tivoli Gardens! [1]

Tivoli is more than just a fairground. It’s a cultural wonderland and historical gem right at the heart of Copenhagen. So buckle up and prepare for a unique mix of big thrills and traditional Danish culture.

Tivoli is the world’s most-visited seasonal theme park

Get ready for a truly unique experience! Tivoli [2] has been thrilling visitors since it opened its gates in 1843. It's the second-oldest theme park in the world and the world’s most-visited seasonal theme park. Its delightful mix of rides, attractions, performances and culture make it a treat for adults and children alike.

Live your very own Tivoli fairy tale

Stepping through its arch, you step into a world of fairy tales, exotic lands and thrilling rides. You can sense that generations have walked its maze of things to see and do, including Hans Christian Andersen [3]. For the brave, the park contains one of the world’s highest chain carousels and a number of exhilarating rollercoasters. 

Romance in Tivoli

At night, Tivoli takes on a whole different aura. With its lights and lamps dotted in trees and on pavements and its cafés, restaurants and fairground attractions open for those taking a stroll after dark, Tivoli is a really romantic setting. Tivoli even offers occasional days where you can get married in one of the world’s most unusual settings [4]

Children’s Tivoli

Children adore Tivoli. The park leaves a lasting impression and is packed with things to do with the family at any time of the day. Take your kids to see The Tivoli Boys’ Guard [5], a famous Danish tradition and children's version of the Queen's Royal Guards. Their marching and music displays are great things to witness with your children. There are concerts and performances throughout the season and unforgettable fireworks displays at the weekend.

Christmas and Halloween in Tivoli

Tivoli is at its most atmospheric when it opens specially for Christmas [6] and Halloween [7]. At these times, you can experience extra special performances and firework displays [8] and sample seasonal treats. The Christmas Market is one of the best in Scandinavia and both are unmissable experiences for the whole family.
