Tivoli . . .DENMARK

Opened in 1843 as a theme park and public garden, Tivoli Gardens has outlasted the great parks of Europe that were its inspiration – the Tivoli in Paris and Vauxhall Gardens in London. Tivoli Gardens still retains a flavour of that era, seeming more like an open-air garden than it does a theme park. However, there are plenty of rides including the Golden Tower, Valhalla Castle, a Ferris Wheel and a roller coaster. The less daring can enjoy the many concerts, circus acts, and theatrical performances that also find a home at Tivoli. The famousCopenhagen Christmas market is held here in November and December, making this a particularly atmospheric time to visit.
