Tivoli Gardens is one of the top things travelers in Copenhagen look forward to seeing, and who can blame them? The majestic amusement park—with the flourished gardens where Hans Christian Andersen used to hang out and draw his inspiration, the numerous rides some of which are only for the bold ones, and the stylish restaurants serving traditional delicacies—isn’t only a favorite among tourists, but locals as well, especially during Christmas or Halloween when the place looks like a scene out of a fairy tale, and with myriads of lights, food stalls, and colorful decorations, no one misses the chance for a stroll around the gardens.
