Frequently asked questions

Here are answers to frequently asked questions about pre-booking your arrival time.

  1. What precautions are being taken to avoid too many visitors gathering at the same time?

    To avoid too many visitors gathering at once, we have chosen to introduce mandatory pre-booked arrival times for admission to Tivoli. We have also positioned additional attendants in front of Tivoli to help ensure a natural flow in and out of the Gardens, and also to prevent crowds from gathering outside the entrance to Tivoli.

    We have also set a maximum number of visitors we would like in the Gardens at the same time, and we keep a close check to ensure that limit is not exceeded.

  2. Which entrances may I use?

    During Christmas in Tivoli, the Main Entrance on Vesterbrogade and the entrance opposite Copenhagen Central Station on Bernstoffsgade will be open.

  3. What should I do if I arrive earlier than my pre-booked arrival time?

  4. Should we enter together?

    No, that is not necessary. You will receive barcodes for the number of people registered on your arrival booking. You can therefore distribute the barcodes among the members of your group in case they arrive at Tivoli later.

    However, please remember that the barcodes provide access only for the pre-booked period.

  5. How long can I stay in the Gardens after my arrival time?

    You can stay in Tivoli for as long as you wish until 22:00. Your booking has no limit on how many hours you may stay in the Gardens.

  6. Can I re-enter if I leave?

    If you leave the Gardens and wish to re-enter later the same day, you must use the exit by the Tivoli Food Hall, where you will be given a wristband. This wristband is your admission ticket for later in the day, and you must re-enter via the entrance at Tivoli Food Hall.

  7. Is there a risk of the gates being closed even though we have pre-booked an arrival time?

    Tivoli accepts no liability for periods when it may be necessary to close access to the Gardens in compliance with current guidelines, and to offer each visitor a happy and safe visit. Therefore, a pre-booked arrival time does not guarantee access to the Gardens.

  8. I have bought a ticket but not pre-booked an arrival time and now they have sold out. What should I do? What can I do?

    Unfortunately, we cannot admit visitors who have no pre-booked arrival time. If you have already purchased a ticket and there are no more arrival times available on the day in question, please note that your admission ticket is valid for one day during the entire season. You are therefore welcome to use your ticket on another day during Christmas in Tivoli.
