We've been into our archives to find heartwarming images from a Tivoli Christmas past.
Copenhagen's much-loved amusement park Tivoli has announced the cancellation of its hugely-popular Christmas season in 2020 due to a partial Covid-19 lockdown in large parts of Denmark, including the capital.
 
Back in 2014, we published a selection of photos of Tivoli at Christmas time. The article and images follow below.

Visitors can sip gløgg, a traditional Nordic mulled wine, while they explore the collection of nisser (elves), pay a visit to Santa himself and even take in a showing of the Nutcracker with performers wearing costumes designed by none other than Queen Margrethe.

We defy even the staunchest Scrooges out there to not get infused with a bit of the Christmas spirit after checking out our photo gallery. 
 
Christmas in Tivoli opened for the first time in 1994, and has become a major driver for Christmas markets and activities in and around Copenhagen. In 2013, Tivoli attracted 982,000 visitors during its seven-week Christmas opening. The current Tivoli Christmas season runs from November 15 – January 4.
