Northern Lights in Tivoli Gardens (NEW)

Northern Lights rarely grace the skies above Denmark. However, a special event near the Open Air Stage will illuminate the heavens with a range of electronic sounds and smoke effects to conjure up the atmosphere of the unique natural phenomenon. The lights are made by Tivoli’s Light Designer Jesper Kongshaug.

New Virtual Reality experience (NEW)

Whether you are a tech-and-games aficionado or just longing for the warm sun to appear, Tivoli’s new Virtual Reality experience Bring the Spring in the Tivoli Castle will cheer you up. Explore the ice masses, free the sun and enjoy the sight of the world sprouting into bloom in this year’s new VR experience in Tivoli Gardens. Get a glimpse of the Bring The Spring VR experience here: 

Valentine’s Day and Tivoli Dining Week

Valentine’s Day is winning increasing favour in Denmark. With Tivoli’s restaurants promising romantic dinners, what better way to get in the mood in the days leading up to 14 February than by strolling through the gardens, where love is in the air. As always, the range of delicious menus will help Cupids arrow to hit the mark in Tivoli Gardens, and from February 1 to February 7 you can enjoy a dining festival: Tivoli Dining Week.

Family fun

Tivoli’s ice-skating rink is back with more snow-frosted lights. The equally popular activity igloo Pingonesia will also be open once again with indoor fun for the family and a new penguin mascot. Almost all the rides will be open, including Tivoli’s hair-raising 103-year-old wooden rollercoaster and the new ride Tik Tak. Ice-skating is free of charge once admission to Tivoli has been paid (bring skates or hire some on site). Igloo activities and rides require tickets or an unlimited ride pass.

Let there be light

Winter in Tivoli has joined forces with Copenhagen Light Festival in February and will present several spectacular light installations unique to Winter in Tivoli, including Hans Christian Andersen’s eleven Wild Swans glowing in the dark. And the iconic ice-skating rink in front of the exotic Nimb Hotel now has special effects; the ice interreacting with the people skating.
