Copenhagen has the oldest amusement park in the World, and it is called Tivoli gardens. If you think fairground rides, candy floss and rollercoasters you are right, but Tivoli gardens is soo much more.
When I was a child, Tivoli was only open in the summer season; from April – October, and I remember it as a magic place where you came, once a year, for a very special day out. I remember all the bright lights, the hyggelige ambience and the many different foreign smells – candy floss, gunpowder, sweet nuts, waffles and tyres burning in the bumper cars.
Today it is still magic, and one of our favourite places to go as a family. Tivoli has expanded the opening hours and is now open for Halloween and Christmas where they set the scene to either Scary Halloween or Magic winter wonderland.
We went and enjoyed the display for Halloween. A bewitched land with pumpkins, spiderweb and ghosts and ghouls everywhere. You can carve your own lanterns, take a look at the biggest pumpkin in Denmark, go for a ride on the carrousel, or go shopping for tasty snacks in the small stalls. It is one of the most hyggelige things you can do for Halloween.
If you’re planning to come to Copenhagen, I would thoroughly recommend a trip to Tivoli, an unforgettable experience for adults and children alike, and one of the most hyggelige places to visit all year round.
