After pillaging and plundering several Copenhagen souvenir shops in search of plastic Viking hats, my friend Ryan and I finally find our bounty at Tivoli Gardens, the famous amusement park in the center of the city from which the original Disneyland supposedly took its inspiration. Founded in 1843, Tivoli’s meticulously trimmed gardens, Moor–inspired Nimb hotel and restaurant and yesteryear kitsch, make it a surprisingly inviting place to spend an afternoon or evening, and I’m kicking myself that we waited until the last minute to pay it a visit. We are soon to join several thousand other passengers aboard the Holland Eurodam for a seven-day Baltic cruise and are hastily investing our last few hours before departure in search of novelty hats to wear for a costume party aboard the ship. We’re also getting two vacations in one as we’ve just spent the past three days touring Copenhagen, an energetic capital city ­that over the course of a long weekend reveals seriously beautiful people, a smörgåsbord (to steal a Nordic word) of intriguing neighborhoods, and an undeniably important dining scene—all presented with Scandinavian efficiency.
