Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
Tel: 45 33 15 10 01
Concierge.com's insider take:
Only a city as whimsical as Copenhagen would bill an amusement park as its main attractionbut of course this isn't just any amusement park. Forget bumper cars and carnival barkers. Opened in 1843, Tivoli encompasses a 20-acre garden, a Chinese pagoda, a merry-go-round of Viking ships, and an open-air pantomime theater, all lit by colored lanterns at night. There's also The Paul, a Michelin-starred restaurant (45-33-75-07-75; www.thepaul.dk). Tivoli used to open in high season only (mid-April through September), but the garden now unlocks its gates for a holiday market of garland-draped cottages selling peppermint sticks, marionettes, and candy apples during the Christmas season. And, for the first time in 2006, Tivoli opened around Halloween, to coordinate with the fall Danish school break, though its take on the holiday is less fright night than gourd lanterns and pumpkin men.
