This place has a certain something you don't find elsewhere. You can say that about other places too, but as long as that certain something is unique, it counts. A lot of people compare Tivoli and Bakken. It’s easy to understand why, since they’re both...More

This was our first trip to Bakken and it was definetely worth the visit. The park has rides for children (and adults) of all ages, lots of restaurant with good food and just as many stalls with different games. Though it is the world's oldest...More

Roughly 30 minutes on the train from the centre of Copenhagen, we were keen to check out the world's oldest amusement park, as its website proudly says (countless times). The stroll through the woods from the train station to the park was nice, though we...More

This amusement park is better in my view than Tivoli near city centre. Better because entry is free and rides cost less than they do at Tivoli. Much less. Plus, you don't need to buy 'tickets' for the rides I.e. 3 tickets for a ride...More
