Top 5 things to see at Tivoli Gardens

Located in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark is the 170-year-old Tivoli Gardens. It is said that this amusement park was built so that the kingdom’s citizens would think less about politics, and so it remains a wonderland to leave worries at the door.

The Rutschebanen

This century-old wooden roller coaster is sometimes called Bjergbanen or “The Mountain Coaster,” and it is one of the oldest operating wooden roller coasters in the world.

The Star Flyer

A thrilling aerial view of charming Copenhagen from the world’s second tallest carousel—what more could you ask for?

Tivoli Aquarium

You’ll find the longest single view panel in Europe right below the grand Concert Hall, home to 1,600 beautiful marine fish.

The Entertainment

From cabaret to ballet, Tivoli has fantastic entertainment. Classical music lovers should visit at the end of the summer for Tivoli Festival and each fall there’s Music Week.

The Food

There’s no shortage of eateries here. Leave greasy fair food at home with Tivoli Gardens Copenhagen restaurants ranging form Italian to traditional Danish smørrebrød.

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.”

What people are saying about Tivoli Gardens

What a wonderful experience, family fun in the magical Tivoli Gardens

Wonderful place to bring kids and daredevils of all ages. Equally wonderful staff everywhere. Warm & charming. Thank you all! The Coburn family.

Relaxing and informative way to see the city from a different view

A fun and different view compared to walking around, getting to spots a bit on the city’s outskirts. Efficient and friendly

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.

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.
