Overview

Situated on seventeen acres in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark, Tivoli Gardens is one of the world's most spectacular and popular amusement parks. Comprised of a lush public garden, theme park, food and shopping mecca, and performing arts center, Tivoli has captured the hearts and imaginations of people around the world—during the Christmas season alone, drawing one million visitors to their annual Christmas light shows and performances.

The introduction by John Loring, who has designed for Tivoli since 1996, traces the development of Tivoli Gardens as an entertainment center and popular gathering place since it first opened in 1843, and highlights the myriad attractions visitors will find today. Illustrating all aspects of Tivoli are 200 stunning photographs of the park, its performers, and its visitors taken by world-renowned photographer Harry Benson over the course of four visits in every season. With its intimate, behind-the-scenes perspectives, Tivoli Gardens captures the magic and energy of this enchanting place throughout the year.
