Tivoli, the 170-year-old amusement gardens in central Copenhagen, used to be only a summer pass-time. In 1994, however, the first Christmas in Tivoli opened, and Tivoli’s special magic proved to be longer lasting than the short Danish winter days. With thousands of lights adorning the historic buildings and gardens, and with charmingly themed villages and shops full of tasty treats and dazzling decorations, Tivoli oozes Christmas. Add to that the wonderful restaurants and the many thrilling rides, and you are set for a day’s adventure.
