Tivoli Gardens

Today is a good day!

I am feeling so much better and there is no longer need for evidence of spring – it is definitely HERE!

Talking about evidence of spring’s arrival – an absolute certain sign is the opening of the Tivoli Gardens here in Copenhagen, and that is today.

The Tivoli Gardens is a famous “amusement park” from 1843 located right in the centre of Copenhagen, and popular among people of all ages. The children, small or big, goes to try the rides, eat ice cream and candy floss and get a balloon. The young people go to try the more dangerous rides, drink beer and listen to Friday Rock on The Lawn (which is actually not a lawn anymore but a big area with gravel). The adults go to eat open faced sandwiches (especially shrimp), maybe listen to classical music or just stroll around and enjoy the beautiful garden. And finally the little old ladies who come for coffee and cakes, or an ice cream on a bench overlooking the lake. Everybody enjoys a day in Tivoli. For some years now they have expanded their opening to include Halloween and Christmas. Christmas is about to become a favourite season for all the lights, the small shops with decorations, gifts and “æbleskiver” (apple dumplings) and glögg (mulled wine), not to mention Santa who is there all December.

But now it is the summer season and that is Tivoli’s Prime Time. To celebrate today’s opening I will be posting Tivoli Stuff all through the weekend. Papers, alphas and some other things will be yours for free, so please stop by everyday.

I would like to dedicate this Tivoli Theme to my new online friend Miriam in San Diego. Miriam, I hope you will one day come back to Copenhagen and let me take you to Tivoli for some open faced sandwiches…

Today I give you a big bunch of Aged Papers and the first of two Alphas. Hope you enjoy it all.

These freebies are no longer available.
Check my store - they might be there.

Thank you so much for the lovely pictures of Tivoli.

If you're ever looking for ideas, I would love one of "The Little Mermaid" and the street along the harbor with all the painted buildings. My son spent 2 years there about ten years ago and I hope to go to Denmark with him some day to see all the wonderful things he has talked about.


P.S. Your queen is beautiful! and I hope she does have a nice birthday, too.

Hey Perkypine,

Thanks for your comment.You should take a look at my posting on opening day (february 28) where I posted a lot of Copenhagen stuff - including the little Mermaid. I don't think Nyhavn is in there but I will make sure to include it next time.

I do hope you will get to Copenhagen one day. It's a GREAT city!

All my best,
