Tivoli Gardens was founded in 1843 and is a national treasure and an international attraction. Fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen, visited many times, as did Walt Disney and many other celebrities, who all fell in love with the gardens. Part of Tivoli Gardens' secret is that there is something for everyone. The scenery is beautiful with exotic architecture, historic buildings and lush gardens. At night, thousands of coloured lights create a fairy tale atmosphere that is completely unique.
