Tivoli’s firework show is extremely popular and normally takes place during the summer on Saturday Evenings, and again on the 31 December when guests inside and outside of the amusement park can enoy the sight; it can be heard up to 10 km from town.

Normally, when the park is full of guests, the fireworks are shot off from the roof of the Tivoli Concert Hall – inside Tivoli.

However, for the celebration of the new Monarch and to say goodbye to the old one, the park will be shooting off fireworks at an unusually high altitude – as the park is closed they simply have more space to use and with no guests, less of a security issue inside the park

If you stand in front of the main entrance – on Axel Torv for instance – you have a really great view of the fireworks that rise far above Tivoli before exploding – illuminating the sky in white, red, and blue.

However, with the extra height and should weather permit ( clear sky please) it will be visible from most of Copenhagen, the park director explains in a press release. It will be the largest show ever in the park’s history and last a full 12 minutes.
