Copenhagen at Christmas: Watch Tivoli Gardens transform into a winter wonderland

Tivoli Gardens was forced to close nine days before the Christmas season 2020. Now, they are back to bring joy and light to the festive season. We mean lots of light.

Copenhagen’s amusement parks are located in the heart the city. They were first opened in 1843.

“It was entertainment from the beginning. People enjoyed themselves with culture, amusements, and festivities. Kasper Schumacher, Park Director, says that this is what we are today, 178 years after our founding.

Tivoli began Christmas celebrations in 1994 with just a handful of market stalls. It was the show-stopper it is today. Every year, more festive spirit is added.

What does Christmas in Tivoli look like?

It took 11.5 days for the park to come to life thanks to 113 Christmas elves, also known as electricians, painters, gardeners, gardeners, and artisans.

The park is decorated with around 1,000,000 lights, as well as 70,000 baubles and 3.5km of spruce garlands. There are also 40km of Christmas tree chains that add to the festive atmosphere.

If that isn’t enough, how about the 11,800 litres of mulled wines the park consumes every holiday season?

Hearts is the theme for this year’s market, as we all could use a little more love after the past 18 months.

Hanging heart decorations and lights are everywhere you go. The bakery’s cakes and cookies are heart-shaped, and light projections on buildings are also heart-themed.

What are you able to do in Tivoli

There are many things to do in the park, not only the beautiful decorations but also the opportunity to meet Santa Claus.

A performance of the Snow Queen ballet can be viewed in Tivoli’s Concert Hall. The set and costumes were designed by Queen Margrethe of Denmark.

You can also decorate your honey cake heart with honey from the park bees. Tivoli’s village has many delicious treats, including AEbleskiver, a Danish donut fried in butter.

After filling up on pastries you can take in one of the live bands. Don’t forget to mention that there are over 30 rides available at this amusement park.
