On the clearest blue day in Copenhagen we took a step back in time and played children again in Tivoli Gardens. We didn't do much research on Copenhagen before arriving, but one thing that immediately caught our eye was this city-centre treat. One of the oldest amusement parks in the world, it's home of a menagerie of rides, games, and sensory delights.
We kicked the visit off with a throw-back meal from my London days, Wagamama, and then immediately hit the fastest rides available to us! From their chinese-inspired dragon coaster to their alpine wooden one, we had one ride of our lives after another. Here's what else we saw:
One of the things I was most excited to see in Tivoli was the live pantomime show. It's the oldest, continually running show in the world and easy see why. Part ballet, part comedy and part traditional pantomime- we were mesmerized. The kids in attendance may have stolen the show in parts though, with their belly-rolling laughter and awestruck amusement. It was unlike anything I've seen before.
Tivoli also holds a secret- their delicious exclusive beer and ample green space! We spent a good hour just laying in the grass, sipping our lagers and enjoy the sweet sunshine. We stayed until well past sunset and made our way slowly, dizzily back to our apartment. Our heads full of cotton candy dreams, laughter, and happy memories. Add this to the list of must-see when you make it Copenhagen. - b.
