A bit further from the city center of Copenhagen but it is worth to go there. Suitable for all ages, free entry, you can just have a walk in there if you are not up to the rides. But the rides are awesome 👏. Its close to the Klampenborg beach, you should go there also, an amazing beach 👌

Here in the forest very close to Copenhagen center you find this very nice place to spend most of a day or evening. You find old attractions and new together with the new Matador village of Korsbaek. A famous Danish television series. Many restaurants some with quite cheap buffets.

This was a great theme park and not very busy on the late august weekday when we visited, armbands were worth it and discounted if you register beforehand. Much less expensive than Tivoli and a short walk and train ride form Copenhagen central. Really good rides and a homely feel to it. some really old rides and not much merchandising... More

We went on a Friday early evening, there were a lot of people coming for after work libations. The food and the beer were as authentic Danish that one could get.

Glad the Danes elected to pursue keeping the essential elements of the theme park while upgrading rides. It's an eclectic mix of older and newer. I was with several young children and we sent the older boys off to ride the roller coasters while I took the little ones to the more "gentle" rides and everybody had a great time.... More

Meaning it's free entry and you can with pay a flat fee for rides or pay per ride usually 10kr or 20Kr We went with 3yo and 6yo and just paid per rides and spent less than the flat fee charge. The roller coasters were good fun and prizes seem to be easily won so the kids had a blast.... More

A short train ride from CPH and you find yourself in Bakken, the only oldest theme park in Europe I believe. Great day out with plenty of rides, stalls, food and drink to meet any and all tastes and pockets!! If you go to Denmark and have and have a day to fill... This is it!

I visited Bakken a week ago, with my bf. I had a lot of fun! Of course, not all rides are for adults, but there is a great selection to choose from. The whole family can have a lot of fun there.
