Tivoli has been thrilling visitors since it opened its gates in 1843. It's the second-oldest theme park in the world and one of the world’s most popular seasonal theme parks. Its delightful mix of rides, attractions, performances and culture make it a treat for adults and children alike.
Stepping through the impressive entrance arch into Tivoli, you immediately find yourself in a world of fairy tales, exotic lands and thrilling roller coaster rides. You can sense that generations have walked its maze of things to see and do, including Hans Christian Andersen. For the brave, the park contains one of the world’s highest chain carousels and a number of exhilarating roller coasters.
At night, Tivoli takes on a different aura. With its lights and lamps dotted in trees and on pavements and with its wide selection of cafés, restaurants and fairground attractions open for those taking a stroll after dark, Tivoli is a romantic setting for couples on a night out. Don't miss out on the magical lovetree, which is lit up by big red hearts during Christmas time.
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 Youth Guard, a famous Danish tradition and children's version of the Queen's Royal Guards. Their marching and music displays are great to witness with your children. The whole family can also enjoy concerts and performances throughout the season and unforgettable firework displays during the weekend. Also, don't forget to stop by Petzi's house for a stack of pancakes or fun and games!
Tivoli is at its most atmospheric when it opens specially for Christmas and Halloween. Go and see extra special performances and firework displays and sample seasonal treats.
