Tivoli Gardens has been a summertime tradition in Copenhagen for 151 years, but this year the park's 110,000 colored lights will also serve as Christmas decorations for the first time. Tivoli, which ended its regular season on Sept. 18, will open for the holidays Nov. 18 to New Year's Eve, but not on Dec. 24, 25 and 26. The park will close after a fireworks display ushers in 1995 and will begin its regular season April 19.
During its holiday session Tivoli will not operate its rides. But several of its restaurants will be open, serving traditional Danish holiday fare. Visitors will also be able to shop at booths selling Christmas gifts and decorations.
Admission in winter will be free. Holiday hours will be Tuesday to Saturday noon to 11 p.m. and Sunday noon to 7 p.m.
