Tivoli a majical garden with rides in the center of Copenhagen. Opened in 1843. For me alot of the majic is that it is surrounded by the city, creating a interesting boundry with reality. Bells toll in the neighborhoods surrounding, as a fake train whistles and blows steam. Walt Disney came to the park several times and you can see where he got a lot of great ideas, the gardens, the themed areas. It is easy to get lost, tiny alleys of games and rides.
There are a few things you wouldn’t find in disney land, like the bar sign. But the attention to detail is what makes it specail. Man hole covers in the asian area with chinese characters. Hand painted signs. Detailed flower planting. Fake snow, heart shaped lights, street lamps that spin, Hanging lanterns that glow, Light shows and rides. Tons of different foods form hot dogs to high end dinning. My hot coco came with a souvenir mug and appleskivers. This has been the one place where traveling alone was not as much fun. No one to share it with, jump on a ride, drink mulled wine, try to win a prize. Sometimes even when a place is special, sharing it with someone else would make it more fun.
