Tivoli : Michelin's recommendations
No clever fountains here, but hundreds of Venetian lights that make this eight-hectare park so magical. There are 400,000 flowers and 110,000 lightbulbs here and the park is a few steps away from the Town Hall. Since it was opened in 1843, this has become the most popular attraction in Denmark, not least with the people of Copenhagen for whom this is their favourite spot for a stroll. There are dozens of refreshment stalls, 30 or so restaurants (from the simple to the luxurious), fairground attractions (roundabouts, bumper cars, roller coasters, etc.), music of all sorts, from rock and pop to classical (the concert hall is the home of the Sjaelland Symphonic); and if you prefer the theatre, there are plays of commedia dell arte or pantomies like the ones that used to entertain the public in the old days of the Fair. This is a perfect place for relaxation and enjoyment, in a human, innocent environment, a million miles away from the modern theme park experience where you are just another customer. And the impeccable uniformed guards don't wear the false smiles of a theme park either. If you are lucky enough to visit on one of the three evenings per week where Tivoli is lit up with a firework display, you will see the sky light up in a thousand colours.
