Tivoli Gardens (or simply Tivoli) is an amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen, Denmark. The park opened on 15 August 1843 and is the second-oldest operating amusement park in the world, after Dyrehavsbakken in nearby Klampenborg, also in Denmark. Georg Carstensen was inspired by the parks and the gardens he had visited abroad when he was first granted permission by the King to open Tivoli Gardens. On August 15, 1843 the garden gates were opened for the first time and the guests were awestruck by the elegant and exotic gardens. Among them was the one and only Hans Christian Andersen, who was inspired by it to write the fairy tale "The Nightingale.". Some underlining, else fine: otherwise unmarked, tight, square, and clean.
