Christmas in Tivoli

Christmas in Tivoli
Every year Tivoli closes briefly in November to transform the park into wonderland for children and adults. There are made of different Christmas shows for children and adults. A Christmas market for adults, where different kinds of ornaments for interior decoration can be purchased, they served the classic specialty mulled wine and apple slices.

My own experience: I have been in Tivoli in December. It is very nice to walk around and look at the beautiful Christmas displays, visit the Christmas market and drink a glass of mulled wine. It is an experience that I highly recommend.

In Danish: Hvert år lukker Tivoli kortvarigt i november måned for at forvandle parken til eventyrland for børn og voksne. Der bliver lavet forskellige juleudstillinger til børn og voksne.

Mine egne erfaringer: Jeg har været i Tivoli i december måned. Det er meget hyggeligt, at gå rundt og kigge på de smukke juleudstillinger, besøge julemarkedet og drikke et glas glögg. Det er en oplevelse som jeg varmt kan anbefale.
