Tivoli Gardens Copenhagen
A couple of weeks ago I spent four days in Copenhagen. It was my first visit to Denmark and just being a couple of hours flying time from London, it was perfect for a city break. In the heart of Copenhagen is the Tivoli gardens. It is the second oldest theme park in the world, opening in 1843. It is said that Walt Disney got the idea of opening a theme park after he visited here. The gardens were a favourite of the fairy tale writer, Hans Christian Anderson , who lived in Copenhagen.
There is a lot crammed into a small space compared to modern theme parks.
Easy to walk around, lots to see and enjoy.
The wooden roller coaster from 1914 is one of only seven in the world that has a brakeman on board every train.
I enjoyed my visit to Tivoli Gardens but in case you are wondering I didn't go on the rides. Sharing with Our World Tuesday
