For Christmas in Copenhagen, tots flock to Tivoli

by Shelly Rivoli
Kids in Copenhagen flock to Tivoli Gardens in its Christmas splendor..
 Today the Travels with Baby Traditions series takes us to Copenhagen Denmark, with a guest post by by local resident Christine Blin. Christine is a French/Icelandic native to who moved to Copenhagen 7 years ago and is the owner and founder of MUU Baby Equipment Rental in Copenhagen, Denmark. Ms. Blin is married to a Dane, and together with their two small boys, they enjoy taking in the best the city has to offer families with young children. 

One of my favorite holiday traditions in November-December is to go to Tivoli amusement park in Copenhagen.  The park is fully decorated in Christmas theme and it has a house with many Scandinavian Santa Clauses dolls that are moving.  

Afterwards, it is a must to eat “Æbleskiver,” which are kind of waffle “balls” which you dip in icing sugar and strawberry jam. The Danes can eat these Waffle balls nearly everywhere they go during Christmas season, at home, in every cafe, and of course everywhere in Tivoli, which offers many restaurants and cafes of its own.

How about you? 
What are little ones looking forward to where you live this time of year?  If you would like to share a special family activity or tradition from your location, please email a short summary and bio to “contact” at Travels with Baby (dot) com for consideration. If you missed our earlier stops, check out these fun family traditions in Rome and Guatemala

Thanks so much to Christine Blin for sharing this glimpse of family-friendly Copenhagen at the holidays, and to Copenhagen Media Center for contributing the lead photo (www.copenhagenmediacenter.com). 

Safe journeys,
