Copenhagen, Denmark: Tivoli Gardens
Europe's most famous amusement park is Tivoli Gardens, an ideal place since 1843 to see Danes at play. One admission price lets you lose yourself in a Hans Christian Andersen wonderland of rides, restaurants, games, marching bands, roulette wheels, and funny mirrors. By day it's a children's fantasyland, but as night falls Tivoli becomes more adult-oriented. Day or night, with or without kids, the cozy confines of Tivoli are a true magic kingdom.
