Denmark is known for being one of the happiest countries in the world, and it is no secret that even though Danes value their cosiness quite highly, they also like to let off a little steam on a roller coaster ride.
Fathermag, a parent magazine based in the USA, recently listed two of Denmark’s most famous amusement parks among the 50 must-sees on family holidays in Europe.
Do not be fooled
Tivoli, located in the middle of Copenhagen, finished in an impressive 14th place in the ranking.
No real surprise there considering its decor, architecture, Christmas lights (steals the show from Radhuspladsen every year) and 32 rides – many tourists end up returning for another day.
Although we appreciate the relatively good location, we know that Tivoli is second to none. And yes, not even to the front runner of the list Disneyland Paris! After all, it was a trip there in the 1950s that inspired Daddy Walt to build his own versions.
Lego for the people
Meanwhile, Legoland in Billund is in 39th place.
Back in the 1960s, the hype about Lego caused tens of thousands of people to make a pilgrimage to the factory just to see where the famous toy was made.
It was decided that Lego would build something, and the city became the cornerstone of the first of eight Lego-themed parks worldwide.
