TRIVOLI GAR­DENS

Fashion Quarterly - - Travel -

A few kilo­me­tres from the cen­tre of Copen­hagen lies this glo­ri­ous amuse­ment park — one of the ear­li­est at­tempts to pro­vide a pub­lic haven where ev­ery­day cit­i­zens could es­cape the worka­day world. With­out the ex­am­ple set by Tivoli there might never have been a Dis­ney­land. It opened in 1843, with no­ta­bles in­clud­ing Hans Chris­tian An­der­sen, no less, in at­ten­dance. To­day the mix of amuse­ments is much the same as it was then. You’re likely to see an 18th cen­tury com­me­dia dell’arte per­for­mance — or take a ride on an an­tique roller coaster and carousel. Oth­er­wise, stroll the beau­ti­ful gar­dens and en­joy one of the many open-air mu­sic per­for­mances. Do go at night when thou­sands of lights strewn through the gar­dens com­plete the fairy­land ef­fect.
