Tivoli Gardens, one of the oldest Amusement Parks in the world, Copenhagen

This Amusement Park is located in front of the central station of Copenhagen. It is the second oldest Amusement park in the world and was founded in 1843 by Georg Carstensen. It doesn’t have that many rides but we will discuss that in a later article. The main features of the park are the themes and the gardens. It was so special that when Walt Disney visited Tivoli gardens he was inspired to build Disney World. If we have to describe the park, it is a colourful collection of gardens, lakes and flowers in the middle of Copenhagen.

Dit pretpark is gelegen voor het centraal station van Copenhagen. Het is het 2de oudste pretpark ter wereld en werd opgericht door Georg Carstensen in 1843. Het heeft niet veel attracties maar daar gaan we over schrijven in een volgend artikel. Het belangrijkste van het pretpark zijn de tuinen en thema’s. Het was zo uitzonderlijk goed dat Walt Disney hier zijn inspiratie heeft opgedaan voor de oprichting van Disney World. Als we het park beschrijven, zien we een kleurvolle verzameling van tuinen, meertjes en bloemen in het midden van Copenhagen..
