Open since 1843, Tivoli Gardens is one of the world’s oldest amusement parks. In December it is like walking into a Christmas winter wonderland. Try a Copenhagen Christmas markets break this year and experience the magic!
Over one million people descend on Tivoli at Christmas time, to experience one of Europe’s best Christmas markets. It is lit up with 500,000 fairy lights and has Christmas decorations at every corner. It is now open from mid November to the 3rd of January, just to cope with demand. It stays open later than other Christmas markets too, making it the perfect choice for a post Christmas break. There are, as always in Tivoli, numerous theme park rides, but at Christmas time there are added light shows, market stalls, and top class concerts. It is no doubt one of the best places to soak up the Christmas atmosphere.
Of course Copenhagen offers so much more than Tivoli Gardens. Explore the trendy streets of Nyhavn where the multicoloured houses will offer you iconic photographs. Enjoy some of the excellent cuisine that Copenhagen is renowned for and shop along the longest pedestrianised shopping street in Europe. For more information on Copenhagen, read my blog here.
I chose the 4* Grand Hotel in Copenhagen. It receives great reviews on tripadvisor, is situated in the heart of the city and also offers complimentary breakfast! Fly with Aer Lingus on the 26th of December and spend two nights here for only €299 per person.
