Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark
Tivoli Gardens (often simply known as "Tivoli") is an amusement park and pleasure garden located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world (actually the second oldest after Dyrehavsbakken), as well as one of Denmark's best-known tourist attractions.

Tivoli Gardens contains a 21 acre (8.5 hectare) landscaped park, including many flowers (more than 400,000 flowers including 65,000 tulips) and fountains. At night, the park is lit by more than 100,000 custom-designed lights. Within the the park, an 18th century frigate, St George III, is moored, and additionally, there are a number of notable buildings:
  • Chinese Tower - A pagoda-style tower

  • Concert Hall

  • Glass Hall Theater

  • Nimb Palace Hotel - noteworthy for its Moorish facade with towers and minarets

  • Pantomine Theater
Additionally, there are many rides and attractions inside the park, aimed at both adults and children. These include 5 rollercoasters, including most famously a wooden rollercoaster (Rutschbanen), which is one of the oldest wooden rollercoasters still operating today. The park also contains the world's tallest carousel, The Star Flyer, which opened in 2006, and stands 262 feet (80 meters) high.

Product Description:
Pleasure Garden Magazine Issue Two Taking inspiration from the pleasure gardens of 18th century London this magazine engages its public with an array of attractions - ranging from the past to the present, the sedate to the salacious. Here we step away from the practicalities of the garden instead placing it within a wider cultural context. The pleasure garden was always a place to escape to - a fantasy in a garden, filled with art, music, fashion, society and sex. It is this mix that we transport to the printed pages of Pleasure Garden. Our path into the Pleasure Garden continues with Issue Two and escapism is provided on many levels. The posters of Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens capture the magic and fantasy of the 174-year- old Danish institution. Marton Perlaki disappears into the wintery parks of Budapest, inspiring Judit Hevesi's words on a love story that may have been. Our icon is Lancelot 'Capability' Brown-the well-known 18 th -century landscape designer who defined the English style. Kate Felus introduces the man and his achievements, academic Tom Williamson sets Brown's work in the context of the time, whilst Tom Johnson and Luke Edward Hall share their experiences of a weekend away at Stowe-one of England's finest 18th-century landscape gardens. Stella Scott talks to artist David Harrison about the magic of the garden and London's lost wild spaces. The stalwarts of winter are exposed for all their beauty in Winter Flowers by Jo Metson Scott and James McGrath. And we meet the founders of Regimes des Fleurs Alia Raza and Ezra Woods to discuss Los Angeles as a garden and their world of scents. Plus photography from Dario Catellani, Mel Bles and Clara Balzary.
