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.

The park is suitable for families with small children under 12. The parking costs 60 dkk. It is possible to buy unlimited ticket for 250 dkk . Important note: you can purchase a ticket for each and separate activity and save a great deal.

Took a bunch of kids - 5 teenage boys and one little girl and there was something for all of them there. It wasn't terribly crowed and the kids were all happy with the rides and the food was very good.

Never saw so many deer in my entire life as here in one place in a single day. Very special and very safe, but still with a feel of "real nature". The amusement park is nice, and probably a better deal than Tivoli. Train connection to the city is very quick and convenient. Make this a day trip from Copenhagen-... More

Bakken is quite nice for smaller kids and for people looking to get drunk cheap. A very strange combination indeed. The entrance is free and you buy all day rides for DKK 279. The rides are not very thrilling, but some of them are still rather nice, especially for kids that would not dare ride more modern attractions. Food is... More

We visited after it had closed in the fall and it was very cool to see it abandoned. We biked out to Bakken from the city center and it was an easy but long ride and going through this open park was well worth the visit. Also the park around it is stunning.

Bakken is a good amusement park to visit if you're on a tighter budget because all expenses are considerably lower than those at Tivoli Gardens. However, you must understand that the various facilities are also not up to the same level as Tivoli. Bakken is a VERY good amusement park for families with young children.

We just left Bakken ..... not because we wanted. We were invited to leave by the most discriminatory security guards of any place in my life. We've been yelled ,And bad treated. Insulted and even touched by these people. We were at the roller coaster and one of the employees started to yell in English cause we didn't speak danish.... More
