Tivoli Gardens (Copenhagen, Denmark)

Happy New Year Everyone!  So where did you spend your holidays? Was it in a tropical climate sipping margaritas or mojitos? Or did you have a great time cozying up in a winter wonderland?
If you ask me, I actually spent Christmas and New Year in a tropical country but a week before Christmas I was in Scandinavia hoping for a winter wonderland but sadly it was too early for a white winter. Anyway I will share to you my amazing experience in one of the oldest amusement parks in the world, The Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark. We went to the amusement park to experience the Tivoli Christmas Market. Tivoli Gardens is astonishingly decorated with glorious Christmas decorations and colorful Christmas lights. I'm in awe of the spectacular display and everything around.

Tivoli Gardens opened on August 15, 1843 and is the second oldest amusement park in the world. Built by Georg Carstensen, Tivoli has a wide variety of attractions: buildings in the exotic style of an imaginary Orient: a theatre, band stands, restaurants and cafés, flower gardens, and mechanical amusement rides. After dark, coloured lamps illuminated the gardens. On certain evenings, specially designed fireworks could be seen reflected in Tivoli's lake. So when you are in Copenhagen, never miss the opportunity to visit The Tivoli Gardens.
