Rock Gods blasting out their tunes, dancers spinning on the stage and Petzi greeting the children. The summer season in Tivoli Gardens is anything but boring! And not just because of the many fun rides, Tivoli is that and so much more. Explore the beautiful flower settings throughout the Gardens, enjoy some cotton candy or a candy glazed apple, win a giant teddy bear in one of the many game stalls or simply enjoy the smiles and laughter from people around you. When you grow hungry, stop by one of the many restaurants and enjoy a lovely dinner. 

After you have enjoyed a nice meal, head to the Tivoli Lake and watch the light show “Tivoli Illuminations”. Or stop by on a Saturday night for a colourful firework display and a potpourri of musical pieces from Danish composer Hans Christian Lumbye.
