Tivoli, also known as Tivoli Gardens, is an amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen, Denmark. The park opened in 1843.

It is the third-oldest operating amusement park in the world, after Dyrehavsbakken in nearby Klampenborg, also in Denmark, and Wurstelprater in Vienna. With 4.6 million visitors in 2017, Tivoli is the second-most popular seasonal theme park in the world after Europa-Park.

From its beginning Tivoli included a variety of attractions: buildings in the exotic style of an imaginary Orient: a theatre, band stands, restaurants and cafés, flower gardens, and mechanical amusement rides such as a merry-go-round and a primitive scenic railway. There is only one on-site hotel at the park: Hotel Nimb.

Tivoli Gardens Hotel
Foster + Partners has won an international competition to design the first Four Seasons Hotel in Scandinavia set within Copenhagens historic Tivoli Gardens. Driven by a careful urban strategy concerned with the preservation of Copenhagens low skyline, the scheme comprises an elegant cluster of interconnecting cylinders that combine to form a generous podium corresponding to the heights of the surrounding rooflines.

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark, northern Europe
