Well worth visiting in December when the Christmas market is in town. The lights and markets and just spectacular - the Tivoli Hotel is completely lit up along all edges! Try some glogg (Danish mulled wine) and watch the laser and water show by the lake (on the hour every hour). I didn't do any rides and the market stalls/shops are quite expensive but there are some gems to be found were you can buy quite a few presents at a decent price - especially Mirins of Copenhagen if looking for good quality (but reasonably priced) bath items/toiletries.

we visited in December where Tivoli is transformed into a winter wonderland. You need to pay to get in but it's well worth it. illuminations on the lake every hour and lots of lovely little stands - lovely Christmassy feel

Visited between Christmas and new year, was takes about in all the guide books as a must see however felt underwhelmed on our visit. There is little in the way of original gardens and the experience is more aimed towards families and is children focused with entertainment and rides. Unless you are planning on using the rides the attraction can be covered in a few hours with a drinks stop. Other attractions in the city are far more value for money.
Friendly and welcoming staff, in a clean and tidy environment. If you have a family you would be well catered for with plenty of drinks stops and restaurants to choose from.

Visiting Tivoli during Christmas time is always an amazing experience; entering a magic world full of wonders that make you feel like a child again. All the elements of the Nordic Christmas are there to enjoy... and some to take home too!

We visited just after the Christmas decorations had been put up and it was magical: lights, Christmas trees, nutcracker soldiers and so much more. Tivoli Gardens, one of the oldest amusement parks in the world, is a must see anytime but especially so during the holidays even if you don't like rides and only want to soak in the ambiance.
