One of the rollercoasters had to be stopped manually by a person applying a brake as the coaster passed by. He missed one and at high speed it slammed into the rollercoasters waiting in line. Luckily there was nobody on board the rear ones. Serious neck injury would certainly be a result had there been any. The passenger was, unbelievably... More

Loved it. Easy to get to on the train, beautiful area, old fashioned fair ground type place. It has the oldest roller coaster in the world but it still scared me. You can buy a wristband or pay individually which is good. Loads of places to eat and you can take a horse drawn carriage ride around the woods for... More

We have been here last August and enjoyed the park very much. Completely different from Disney and six flags parks but you feel the history and the attractions are very nice. Our children: 14, 8 years, enjoyed it very much!

The history of Bakken is what makes it a must-visit for anyone staying in the Copenhagen area for an extended amount of time. Being the oldest amusement park in the world, it has an old charm that is wonderful so long as you go in managing your expectations. Really enjoyed the candy shop and the very old roller coaster aptly... More

Bakken Amusement Park is the oldest existing amusement park in the world with great traditions and a history, that dates back to 1583. If Tivoli is the biggest tourist meeting point in Copenhagen, Bakken definitely is the popular local hangout. No english translation neither at the entrance nor inside , not even on restaurant menus but you eat better here... More

This theme park reminds me of when I was a child - and now we are talking some 30-40 years ago! Forget 3D rides and enjoy some classic roller coasters and bumper cars! However, I personally do prefer the more modern stuff, so I was not too impressed. We were there a Monday mid-Aug and the park was more or... More

We were two families I'm this park, and we had a great time there. The entry was free, and a ride ticket to ride almost anything was quite cheap as well.

You may know Tivoli, but Bakken is different. Outside of Copenhagen, it is actually a green park which "accidentally" also homes an amusement park. Sure, the rides are old, but they are awesome. Just a bit too short for my taste, and also a bit expensive, why I only give four stars.

This amusementpark has something for everyone, even though I'd say that smaller children like it more, there are a lot of things for them to do. There are loads of restaurant and cafés and they're more reasonably prices than Tivoli. There is no entrance fee either, even if parking costs 60 DKK per car, which still must be considered a...

Visiting Copenhagen for a few days you might like to take the S-Tog out to Klampenborg St. Don't forget to bring your bathing suites if the weather is good as a lovely beach is located just across the road from the train station. Bakken offers affordable rides (special deals on Wednesdays I think, google it!) lots of places to eat... More
