What people are saying about Copenhagen

A literal hidden gem. Downtown Copenhagen and would never expect that one of the world's best amusement parks is nestled between City Hall and Central Train station, with only the tallest swing rides giving away it's location. A marvel of city planning going back over 175 years.

We had a fabulous tour with Peter! He was a really knowledgeable guide and mad it all such a wonderful experience! Note to more mature participants, my Mum joined me on this tour who is now 80 years old & LOVED the whole experience!!!

It’s a must see in Copenhagen in my opinion. I spent over 3h there and couldn’t see everything. I found it very interesting and it was great to have lockers downstairs to leave your belongings for free.

A perfect place to take the family. I’ve never seen an amusement park that’s also so beautiful inside.

The process of claiming is very quick. Very much recommended.
