Tivoli Garden is the oldest of the amusement parks in the world, they say that Walt Disney got his idea of Disneyland from here. It is situated in the center of Copenhagen and is the favorite of locals and tourists as well.

They have an 80m high carousel, it is incredible! It is called the Himelskibet and moves with a speed of 70km/h, man feels sick only watching it.

The Gardens give home to all sorts of events, in the summer season, there are stages for performers of pantomime, dance shows and even ballet.

The fireworks and lots of games are fantastic. The whole part is amazing, actually, if you are with kids or you are a big kid in your heart yourself.

The place is very clean and constructed with very good taste, no wonder, it is 100 years old and also has nice bars and restaurants, which are not expensive compared to places outside the park.

Address:
Vesterbrogade 3
1620 Kobenhavn V
Copenhagen

Price:
Adults DKK 95 (about $19)
Children DKK 45 (about $9)

Opening Hours:
They are opened in the summer season (from April to August) and then reopen for Halloween and then for the Christmas festival.
