Tivoli Gardens is Europe’s oldest amusement park and at Christmas time is transformed into a winter wonderland straight out of a fairy tale, with hundreds of Christmas trees and over half a million twinkling lights. Stands sell Danish Christmas cookies – klejners , specialities and handicrafts. The lake is transformed into a huge skating rink (skates can be hired), and all the rides are in operation. Also on the lake there are several spectacular light displays during the day and the aroma of Danish Christmas foods and warming Glogg waft across the air. Don’t miss Nissekobing, or Pixieville, an indoor Christmas town with busy little Pixies getting ready for the big night! Between Christmas and New Year, from TBC December, you can experience the annual Fireworks Festival.
During Christmas in Tivoli you can try six new rides which are not in the Gardens during the summer season. The Chinese Lantern, the Russian Trojka, the Siberian Railway, the Christmas Express and the Music Carousel. Climb on board the Siberian Railway which takes you through the fascinating Russian village, feel the wind in your hair on the way down from the top the Chinese Lantern, or get into the Christmas spirit with a cosy tour on the Christmas Express.
Everyone is welcome to say hello to Father Christmas and have a Christmas photo taken with him in his cosy grotto at the Pantomime teatret (Pantomime Theatre). Everyone who visits Father Christmas will also receive a little surprise!
It will be a fantastic experience when the Christmas tree lights in Tivoli’s Russian area are switched on. There will be music, speeches and Father Christmas himself and Father Frost will switch on the lights on Tivoli’s huge Christmas tree.
Your senses will be bombarded by light, water, smoke, fire and laser lights, accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s immortal music from the Nutcracker Ballet.
The shows last about 11 minutes. Please note that the illumination show may be cancelled on some days due to icy weather. The best place to watch the illuminations is from the bridge over the Tivoli Lake or from the path in front of the stairs from the Orient next to Vertigo.
