Bringing the Outside in: Tivoli

Tivoli Copenhagen

I wanted to try something bright and bold this week! This unusual piece of architecture is referred to as Klump Island- based on the classic Danish story character Rasmus Klump, and is inside Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark.

We travelled there about four years ago in the height of winter- it was probably the coldest memory I have. Lakes were frozen, wind and snow were being whipped up and falling almostnhorizontally, but, nothing was going to stop us checking out that marvellous city!

Of course we had the Tivoli on our to-do list. Tivoli is a famous amusement park and ‘pleasure garden’ as some call it. Tivoli opened in 1843! It’s the second oldest amusement park in the world and you can visit to see concerts or go to the theatre, take a spin on the rides and you can even stay in one of the hotels there if you wish. Or you can simply go for a cup of hot glögi if you need warming up!

If you want to bring a bit of Klump Island into your room, check out the items above!
