Halloween in Tivoli

In the heart of Copenhagen there is one very special place, where the fairies live and beautiful fairy tales are born. If your mind is going the H.C. Andersen direction, you are not too far off. The famous author probably would have been a frequent visitor here.

The special place is Tivoli of course! Since 1843 it has become a world of amusement, beautiful gardens, concerts and gourmet dining. The Danes certainly know how to have a good time. It is a world of magic, fun and beauty. The park has a face for every season, so make sure to get an annual card on your first visit, as this is a world you will want to return to.

Summer – for one the weather is perfect, so you can spend the entire day strolling in the park. Tivoli is all dressed up in pretty flowers, quite nice rock concerts are organized every Friday (Fredags Rock) and there is loads of kids and families roaming around.

Autumn – After a short break in September, the gardens open up for Halloween.

Winter – Christmas is the prettiest season in Tivoli, the beautiful Christmas decorations, hygge atmosphere, the smell of glögg and æbleskiver will make you forget the freezing cold.

Now Halloween is in full swing until the end of October. So if you like pumpkins and fun times hurry before the park closes off till December.

Before the white Christmas comes there is still time to enjoy the “scary” Halloween. To the relief of some, myself included, and to the disappointment of many I would suppose, there is not much scary lurking in the dark corners of the park. What you will see though are thousands of pumpkin decorations literally everywhere. Such a pretty sight!

Here is a little peek into Halloween in Tivoli this year. Enjoy :)

For the love birds - rent a boat and cruise around the small pond in the cosy lighting.

Study spots in Copenhagen – Landbohøjskolens Have

This may sound crazy but I looove exam time! Despite the sleepless nights, finger-hurting clicks on the keyboard at tornado speed and some nerve wracking moments, it’s mostly enjoyable.

There is one big fat reason for that – it’s in the beautiful month of May, when the nature is in bloom and it’s in beautiful Copenhagen, which has an abundance of charming study halls, cute parks and cosy cafes. During the last couple of weeks I have been scouting many of the cities libraries and nature spots for the search of some quiet and inspiring spaces to let my study-holic self be absorbed in the universe of knowledge.

Yesterday I discovered a great location, one of the libraries of Københavns Universitet at Frederiksberg. KU has an abundance of cool locations around Copenhagen, and I envy them profoundly for that. But the good thing is that the study halls are open for all the students, well except one of them, the most magical place, the Hogwarts of Copenhagen :(

This location is at Dyrlægvej 10and is quite nice for studying. They have both group tables upstairs and silent areas, as well as computer tables. It’s less busy than the CBS study halls, therefore is definitely preferred! It’s open on

Mon – Fri: 08:00-20:00
Weekends: 10:00-17:00

The omnipresent eduroam wireless network is available across all universities in Denmark, so it’s in this library as well.

For me one of the major draws of this area is the Landbohøjskolens Have, the charming royal garden of KU’s SCIENCE faculty. I love this place in any weather, it’s not a typical thing I would say, but this place has an enchanting aura around it. Hyggelig and pretty, it reminds of a shy princess, Cinderella, that seemingly lacks the grandeur of the Kongens Have and the like, but is such a precious gem. In short, a lovely place to relax with a book.

Some of the idyllic moments I captured in the park. I just love the spring in Denmark!

 

Here is an Everplaces map with all the nice study places in Copenhagen that I have discovered so far.
