No family trip can go by without a visit to an amusement park, but can you guess which country is home to Europe’s very best? Some of the oldest and most epic amusement parks in this corner of the world are located in Denmark, and here are a few you shouldn’t miss for the world.

Tivoli Gardens

Tivoli Gardens is one of Copenhagen’s main tourist attractions, and it’s not difficult to see why. In addition to countless epic rides, this amusement park also offers beautifully landscaped gardens, many amazing eateries, and countless events you can attend throughout the year.


The world’s oldest operating amusement park opened its doors in 1583, and it’s still alive and kicking in Denmark. Bakken is located in close proximity to Copenhagen and it’s home to several wild rollercoasters and countless more relaxing rides.

Legoland Resort

Lego originates from the Danish city of Billund, which also happens to be home to the first Legoland Resort. It was built next to the original Lego factory in 1968 and now features several themed areas that cover approximately 35 acres of land.

Djurs Sommerland

As its name suggests, Djurs Sommerland is mostly open in the summer, but that just adds to its charm. Since its opening in 1981, this amusement park is constantly expanding and its rollercoasters offer a thrill of a lifetime.
