Tivoli Hotel Opens Sept 2 in Copenhagen


After a period of soft opening, the new, 12-story Tivoli Hotel has been deemed completely ready for an official opening, set for 2 September. The hotel is a cooperative venture between the largest Copenhagen hotel company, the Arp-Hansen Hotel Group, and Denmark’s biggest tourist attraction, Tivoli, designed to offer guests an integrated experience fusing together accommodation and entertainment.

The design is intended to evoke the Tivoli spirit and design history. Features include a merry-go-round in the lobby, a fitness and pool area, 382 rooms decorated in the Tivoli design and a Tivoli Brasserie restaurant. In addition, guests can enjoy a meal at the top of the hotel in the Sticks’n’Sushi Skybar overlooking the whole city. There are plans to later add a new themed garden and playground – the Columbine Garden – which will be open to the public connecting the hotel, the congress centre and Tivoli.

In addition to Tivoli tickets, guests will have access to shuttle buses running between the hotel and the Gardens, and during the season, Tivoli characters such as Pierrot, Harlequin and Columbine will perform in the hotel lobby for families.

“It is gratifying to finally have a theme hotel in Copenhagen connecting Tivoli – Denmark’s biggest tourist attraction – with a hotel based on the Tivoli concept with the Tivoli design and colors and characters,” says Lise Lyck, head of Center for Tourism and Cultural Management at Copenhagen Business School.

“The new combination of Tivoli, a well-run hotel concept and, later this year, a congress centre promotes synergy and creates an entirely new product. This will strengthen Copenhagen as a tourist destination as well as a congress destination,” says Lars Bernhard Jørgensen, CEO of Wonderful Copenhagen.
