Tivoli Gardens, often referred to simply as Tivoli, is one of the world's oldest amusement parks, with another historic park located in Klampenborg, Denmark. Since its opening in 1843, Tivoli has become the pride of Copenhagen and the city's premier tourist attraction, making it a must-visit destination. With millions of visitors each year, it ranks as the third most visited amusement park globally, following Disneyland Paris and Europa-Park. In 2016 alone, Tivoli welcomed 4.6 million guests.

Rides

Tivoli's rides will match the craziest thrill seekers' expectations. The legendary Vertigo will drive you upside down at a hundred kilometers per hour. After voting held in 2014, it was officially acknowledged to be Europe's Best Ride. Tivoli's unbeatable ride is still the Roller Coaster from 1914. This oldest wooden ride is a rarity nowadays, as it's one of seven remaining rides worldwide that boast a brakeman on board. The Demon is one of the most thrilling rides in Tivoli Gardens, eliciting screams of excitement with its three incredible loops and reaching a height of 28 meters at its peak.
