    You get an A+ for the photos.
    My favorite part was that fountain with the water & bubble filled tubes. Thats a very mondern idea but they pulled it off to look very classic in traditional Euro style. Beautiful. The park looks cozy and cool. Was it hot when you visited?

    It was quite cool, actually. We experienced two very heavy rain showers during our 8 or so hours in Copenhagen. It is such a wonderful city. I cannot wait to go back... and when we do, I want to have a full day to enjoy Tivoli.

    How cool that someone visited MY home park.

    I am glad you liked Denmark Tom Chaney. What else did you see in Copenhagen?

    I have visited Tivoli all my life, and I think the big difference between Tivoli and Disneyland, that it is not aimed at fun for the entire family together. The elderly visit Tivoli for the gardens, a lot of people go there simply to eat, there are rock koncerts every friday night in the summer for the young, and rides for kids at all ages, and There is a koncert hall that has a lot of classical koncerts. The park is closed from late September to April but opens up every December with a christmas theme.
    The park is special because of its age and because of its location right smack in the heart of Copenhagen.
    You say Im a bitch like its a bad thing.

    London BABY!!

    Re: Tivoli Gardens - 27 Photos

    Greetings, winniepooh!

    Since we were on a cruise ship, our visit was short. We disembarked at about 9am and had to be back on board by 4pm, so the day was a whirlwind. Forgive me if I cannot remember specific names of places. (Victoria kept a journal, though.) We docked just south of the "Little Mermaid" and walked to Tivoli. Along the way, we saw many beautiful parks, buildings, churches and such. We stopped and had a beer at the side of a canal. From there we went to the Royal Palace, but didn't go inside. In a large, round central plaza, we visited a "flea market." Across the street was parked a beautifully restored 1948 Buick painted to resemble a California Highway Patrol car! (I love antique cars.) We then proceeded up the "shopping street" that is closed to vehicles until we reached the City Hall. Vic really wanted a photo by the large statue of HC Andersen, but a large bus tour group had it monopolized, so we decided to save that for the next visit. Then it was into Tivoli. I regret that we couldn't see it at night. All the lighting must make it stunning! We managed 2-3 hours at Tivoli, which isn't nearly enough. Naturally, we want to go back someday and have more time in "Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen." People were quite friendly. (The Scandinavian people in general are also quite attractive!)

    On a previous day of our journey, we visited Ronne, Bornholm, Denmark. It was a charming little town and we taxied to Svaneke for a lunch of herrings and locally brewed beer. I'm not much of a raw fish eater, but the herring was delightful!

    Re: Tivoli Gardens - 27 Photos

    One thing I found quite interesting is that on the tivoli website, they
    now have some videos you can look at that take you on some of
    the rides....

    They also have (apparently from what I can tell - the audio's in Danish)
    the opening of their Christmas festival and videos of the park at that time....

    The video's aren't large, and they do tend to stutter a bit, but you
    get the general picture (no pun intended). Its in Danish, so unless you're
    fluent in it, be prepared to poke around a bit...

    Coaster fans, check out the Rutschebanen. Not the most hi-tech coaster
    around, but they told me was built in the early part of the last century.....
