The worlds oldest amusement park

Because of its historic value and unique location, no big brands are allowed to set up stands at Bakken and neon signs are banned. Instead a jumble of colourful wooden structures, small independent shop owners and quirky stalls meets visitors.

Authentic Danish charm

In Denmark, everyone knows Bakken, the world’s oldest amusement park. 

But despite being located just ten minutes outside Copenhagen, the park, which is tucked away in the beautiful woods of Dyrehaven, is still unknown to most foreign visitors. And that is a shame because the park not only offers free entrance, it also offers a nostalgic historic ambiance, authentic Danish charm and an array of amusements and thrill rides.

For the kid (in all of us)

Many Danish families have been coming back to Bakken for generations. Bakken’s longest standing visitor is, however, Pjerrot. The well-known white-faced clown, who visits Bakken every day, has been a hit with the amusement park’s youngest guests for more than 200 years. Still, the main attraction for most is the park’s many fun rides, including an 82-year-old wooden rollercoaster. In total, the park presents a choice of 32 rides for all ages and levels of thrill seekers as well as 78 other attractions such as shooting stalls, gaming arcades and much more.
