What people are saying about Copenhagen

This experience was something else! I went at around 5.30pm so that it was less busy and also so that I could see Tivoli in the dark also! Beautiful is just an understatement. Everywhere you look there is something else to see! It is such a magical place and I highly recommend! Definitely book before you go in order to get in quicker & to use the main entrance NOT the side one opposite the train/metro station!

We had a great time in tivoli and icing on the cake the weather was beautiful. The park has activities for different ages and remains on a human scale. My children are still talking to me about it 6 months later!! To do again without a doubt

Excellent experience, we had no problem with the ticket, we entered quickly and everything inside is spectacular, magical, beautiful. Most attractions are for children, but everything is very nice and worth entering.

I love the fact that the garden is in the center of the city. Very accessible and beautiful to see.

Normal price, interesting routes, we drove all three routes, we liked it
