Our insider tips

Wristband options

Depending on your interests—dinner, entertainment, rides—there’s a few inclusive options to choose from. Pay the Tivoli Gardens entrance fee alone or get a wristband for unlimited rides. Admission is free for children under eight.

Check out the surrounding area

Because the amusement park is located right next to the Copenhagen Central Station and a ten minute walk from City Hall, walking around the area is especially rewarding. Explore the beautiful city as it should be—walking along the canal admiring the Nordic architecture.

Brush up on some Tivoli Gardens Copenhagen history

The experience wouldn’t be complete without knowing something about the place. The founder, Georg Carstensen, was able to get King Christian VIII on board with the Tivoli gardens amusement park by saying, “When the people are amusing themselves, they do not think about politics.”

Nice tour, too bad the English headsets didn’t work

No need to book ahead for a weekday in May, and “skipping the line” at Tivoli just means you go to the prepaid line for your ticket, unnecessary in May, and you still have to go to one of the two entrances staffed by humans, which may involve a long trek around the exterior of the Gardens (which are spectacular in tulip season, and tranquil on a weekday). The canal cruise was very nice, with comfortable seating inside and out, lots of great architecture and interesting boats to see. Bring anything you’ll want to drink (or eat) on board. Affable crew, but they gave up quickly when so many headsets didn’t work. Don’t forget your camera.

Great tour, lovely guide, everything went smoothly

This was a great way to get an overview of the city. Easy to find, no problems with vouchers. The guide was lovely and funny, she spoke well and knew a lot about the city. We were surprised to find out that the vouchers could be used at anytime during the day, because we really rushed to make it at 10 am. My recommendation is to take a seat on the side further from the dock when you get on. There are sights on either side, but I feel like we missed some cool ones because we were on the other side.

Copenhagen Canal Tour & Skip-the-Line Tivoli Ticket Reviewed by

Everything is good, except for the price of each ride :-)

No single word to complain about the entry ticket. Easy, quick and accessible were all guaranteed. The Garden is marvellous and the assisting staff is extremely helpful and nice. However, if you plan to travel as an economical tourist like me, the cost for each ride is something you should reconsider. Venture one or two rides to experience the adventurous, thrilling and hair-raising feelings is also good to try, though. :-) A lovely choice for a family or a couple, indeed.

Very handy and had a day without worries

Didn't have to worry about money, credit card, currency. Free to choose any attractions I'd like to ride and even could ride for a second and thrid time when there was no line. Peace of mind and helped me to enjoy even more my day!

The Trivoli gardens was everything we expected and more. Great day out

Pre-booked voucher was excellent , no fuss fast track entry to the gardens. Will definitely come back to Copenhagen to visit the gardens again especially when illuminated at night and with concert /pantomime theatre performances.
