    Ferris Wheel views

    by grandmaR Updated Jan 18, 2014

    Favorite thing: When we got into Tivoli, we went first on the Ferris Wheel. We went around twice (which we could do because it was rainy and no one was waiting) because I wanted to have a second chance to take pictures of the town. The Ferris wheel is one of the real classics at Tivoli

    general ideas

    by doodybee Updated Jan 19, 2009

    Favorite thing: we stayed at the astoria hotel
    just behind the main rail station in copenhagen and 2mins walk form tivoli
    we also walked up to the zoo ( about 20mins ) which was good value
    tha shopping area and habour area is in walking distamce from this hotel too as are one or two good museums ( although i can't see a young girl being imnterested in the Military Museum - may be wrong though )
    we booked the hotel through "GTA Hotels" but other sites have this hotel, it was good value fro money in my eyes and very central

    the SAS hotel looked to be inn the same area too

    enjoy copenhgagen - we did

    The famous Tivoli

    by chancay Updated Mar 24, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: So famous, but we did not go in (we couldn´t , because it was already winter season). Nevertheless it is a big party mile, like a big parish fair, opened in the summer season from april until september. This park exists since 1843!! At night there is a big illumination show, with about 11000 lights and 3 times a week you can enjoy fireworks at 15 minuts before midnight.

    Favorite thing: We were a little disappointed by Tivoli. I had heard a lot about it and how much people enjoy it. I think that we either went at the wrong time of the year or for some reason it was just really quiet...

    Favorite thing: Tivoli, the world famous pleasure garden, was opened in 1843. It is situated just a few minutes walk from the Central station. In its extensive flower gardens you will find cafés, restaurants, pavilions, open-air theatres, a concert hall, and an amusement park. Fireworks and illuminated fountains brighten the park at night, and concerts and ballets are performed throughout the summer. The Christmas market first opened few years ago has already become a tradition.

    Fondest memory: When I first visited Copenhagen I got a strange and joyous feeling like I had been there before. Since then visiting the city has always been like coming home.

    Tivoli & StrøgetFunsters will...

    Favorite thing: Tivoli & Strøget
    Funsters will want to head to Tivoli, the popular amusement park-cum-flower garden in the heart of the city. The famed park has been operating for over 150 years and so has had plenty of time to figure out how to best cater to the hordes of tourists and locals, many trailing enthusiastic youngsters, who flock there between mid-April and late-September each year. There are all the usual fun-park attractions, such as a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, open-air performances, carnival games and food pavilions. For the more cultured fun-loving palates, there are also traditional folk dances and a large concert hall hosting international symphony orchestras and ballet troupes. Tivoli also opens up for a few weeks prior to Christmas for holiday festivities, a seasonal market and ice-skating on the lake.

    When you've had all the gee-whiz, whoop-it-up, wallet-emptying festivities you can stomach, stagger out to the northern corner of the Tivoli compound and proceed in a calmer consumer-oriented manner up the world's longest pedestrian mall, Strøget. Strøget is a long chain of five streets that is replete with shops and eateries, as well as a myriad of entertainment options including street theatre.

    Favorite thing: Tivoli gardens is a must see when visiting Copenhagen! Just because! But, it is fairly expensive and very crowded!

    Fondest memory: My daughters biggest goal when reaching Copenhagen was to visit 'Tivoli.' Here she is! I have to say the architecture is impressive!

    Favorite thing: You must go to 'Tivoli Gardens', just great, it is not at all like Dysneland. It has been around for over hundred years and fifty years. Get a Copenhagen card, this little card will be of great use to you, while you tour the city.

    Fondest memory: I met a few people in this city, and I had a wonderful time.

    Favorite thing: Tivoli is a carneval located across from the main train station. Cool scenery, schrubbery, and food.
