København, Kongeriget Danmark
It was said that when Walt Disney visited Tivoli Gardens, it gave him the idea to create Disneyland. As the second oldest amusement park in the world, Tivoli first opened in 1843 and still receives up to 4 million visitors annually. And at Christmas Time, 120,000 incandescent bulbs light up the night as planned out by the Tiffany & Co design director.
I am such a sucker for Christmas lights and I felt like a little kid when I visited Tivoli. It was just another freezing day in Copenhagen but it was like stepping into a magical land and couldn’t imagine a better time to be here. This was back in 2011, when I was able to go to an impromptu trip to Scandinavia.
Almost four miles of lights lit up the whole park. I didn’t ride one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the world, rather just walked around and wandered. The cool air and steaming Glögg around adds up to the holiday, romantic and whimsical feel all mixed together. There wasn’t any snow yet as it was still Autumn at the time of my visit but it still gives off that feeling of being… mesmerized.
