Enjoy a new world on a city break through enchanting Copenhagen.
In the center of Copenhagen lies a realm of children’s dreams, show girls, guard musicians and carousels: Tivoli is a real park of joy and great fun for visitors from everywhere.
The Tivoli – where you can really enjoy yourself
The Tivoli in Copenhagen is an excellent example of the mentality of the Danish kingdom – and so the world-famous amusement park is practically the little kingdom in a nutshell.
Almost 83,000 square meters of cheerful world in the heart of the Danish capital combine to form a fairytale park made of cotton candy, the scent of roses and marching music, a royal pleasure for everyone.
Tivoli is Denmark’s cheerful heart: a good four and a half million visitors flock to this place every year – and whenever there is a reason to celebrate, the Danes and their guests go to the park, not only during the holidays, to Sankt Hans Aften or in the Christmas time.
Highlights among the 23 entertainment establishments are the furious roller coaster “Dæmonen”, “Dragen” for shaking vigorously and “Monsoons” for nerve-racking up-and-down. But the wonderfully contemplative attractions such as the colorful, old carousel, the plush music theater, the pantomimes and the many clowns really ensure the unique Tivoli flair under hundreds of old trees and in the midst of a magnificent sea of flowers.
Copenhagen’s Tivoli is Europe’s third largest amusement park: the big open-air stage “Plænen” hosts the show greats of the world, such as Sting, the Beach Boys, Phill Collins and Dianne Reeves or Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.
The entertainment encompasses all facets, from classic to hip hop to jazz – and the Tivoli gastronomy is also diverse.
From the elegant casino to the Danish Rød-pølse-Bude – you can find everything here. The long list of well-known restaurants and cafés is headed by “La Crevette” with excellent fish specialties and by the trendy “Café Ketchup”. The “Hereford Beefstouw” is famous and the Bavarian “beer garden” has sausages and lots of fadøl.
“Den Røde Pimpernel”, a burgundy red restaurant and also Copenhagen’s oldest dance hall, offers traditional Danish cuisine, wonderful music from the early days and dancing until the next morning – for everyone from their early 20s to their late 60s.
Visitors from near and far are fascinated by Ribe’s picturesque atmosphere and the 1,300-year-old history of the small Danish town. Ribe has about 8,100 inhabitants and is located in southwest Jutland. It is the oldest surviving city in Denmark, founded in the early 8th century during the Germanic Iron Age.
Ribe offers numerous cultural and scenic features. Cultural highlights include the cathedral as well as well-known museums and churches. The river Ribe flows through the city and is home to a variety of plants and animals in the water and on the banks. Notable and rare birds such as the European white stork have found refuge here. The birds decided to build nests on the chimneys of the historic townhouses. This bird species has steadily declined across Western Europe due to the conversion of farmland and droughts in its wintering area in Africa.
Ribe Cathedral – an interesting sight
Ribe Cathedral, which was begun between 1150 and 1175, can be seen from afar in the flat landscape of South Jutland. The cathedral has three steeples and is Denmark’s only five-aisled church. The cathedral experienced several devastating events during its long history and has been restored, expanded and decorated several times. Today Ribe Cathedral is the best preserved Romanesque building in Denmark, but it reflects a wide variety of architectural styles and artistic traditions. It is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Denmark and has been awarded two stars in the Michelin Guide.
