Pumpkin Time in Copenhagen


Halloween is just around the corner. Halloween is celebrated – in a very limited manner – in many countries in Europe. In Europe, often the pumpkin is used not as a symbol of Halloween, but represents the coming of the Fall season. No place does the “pumpkin” better then the Tivoli Gardens, the amusement park in downtown Copenhagen. You can walk – or better, ride a bike – from anywhere in the city the amusement park and enjoy the entertainment, the restaurants, and the pagentry of Tivoli.

During the Fall Season, Tivoli is opened limited days and hours and certainly worthy of a visit. Pulling some information from the 2012 Tivoli Halloween website – and a few pictures from our own experiences… here’s a great look at Tivoli… with pumpkins, LOTS of pumpkins!

Once again the Tivoli Gardens have been transformed into a warm and welcoming Halloween kingdom during the autumn holiday season. From 12 – 28 October 2012 the Gardens are filled with thousands of pumpkins, hay bales, spiders and scarecrows.
