Completing my Bucket List

Tivoli Gardens


Tivoli Gardens is a must do on your trip to Copenhagen.  It is the second oldest amusement park in the world built in 1843.

We arrived around 5pm on a public holiday in Denmark – General Prayer Day, so the whole park was buzzing with people enjoying their day off work.

As well as the rides there are many restaurants, shops, games and the beautiful gardens.


We started by getting some fish and chips at one of the stalls before going on the Star Flyer.

The Star Flyer is a combination of a high-view attraction and a classic swing-carousel, with both the thrill of excitement and the sensation of flying.

The ride is themed, featuring Tycho Brahe’s universe with planets, quadrants, zodiacal armillaries, telescopes and astronomical symbols. In the evenings the Star Flyer is illuminated, and forms a visual attraction together with the rest of the illuminations in the Gardens.

You get a magnificent view of Tivoli Gardens and some of the centre of Copenhagen from the top.


David was excited when we came across the candy floss stall

After spending a few hours on the rides, and enjoying the scenery we stopped for a Belgium waffle with Nutella ice cream – fantastic!! I was asked if I would like jam on mine as well, not something I’ve ever tried before but I went for it and it tasted wonderful!

    Yes! We were there at Halloween and it was amazed, all bedecked in pumpkins. It was pouring with rain and we still loved it but I’d really like to go back again in better weather and get the full experience.
