Entertainment sights in Copenhagen

There are three entrances to Tivoli: the main one on Vesterbrogade, another opposite the main entrance to the Central Station and one on HC Andersens Blvd opposite Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. You pay both for entrance and then again for whatever rides you choose thereafter (usually around 25kr each), although a multiride ticket covers all the rides, among them the Star Flyer, reputedly the world’s tallest carousel. There are also plenty of free shows, including the Saturday-night fireworks (on show from mid-June to mid-August), the nightly laser show spectacular and the live band at Plænen every Friday at 10pm from mid-April to late September.

Lovers of old theatres won’t mind that the memorabilia in what used to be the Hofteater (Old Court Theatre) focuses, naturally, on Danish actors and productions. The theatre, which dates (in its current state) back to 1842, closed in 1881 but reopened as a museum in 1922. You can wander backstage, into the dressing rooms, and see the royal box, as well as examine old sets, costumes and posters.
