Dyrehavevej 62, 2930 Klampenborg
If you drive just 10 kilometres north of Copenhagen, you’ll find Dyrehavsbakken in Klampenborg. Here lies the world’s oldest amusement park – Bakken Amusement Park. Beyond the long history, the park also offers plenty of rides, games, delicious restaurants and free summer entertainment.
Unlike most amusement parks, it doesn’t cost anything to visit Bakken – the amusement park is the only one in Denmark to have free admission.
Bakken also provides a packed entertainment program during the whole season, which lasts from April to December.
The Open Air Stage is the place for hours of delightful entertainment and music during the season. Here theme days are held at a regular basis; theme days such as CoverTuesday, FunkyFriday, MetalTuesday and Comedy at Bakken, where several comedians provide the entertainment. Furthermore, there is also several large Sunday concerts and children’s entertainment – all of it free of charge.
Bakken amusement park is the place for both cosy family outings, children’s birthday parties, Stag nights, summer parties, office parties, and much more.
You can also meet Pjerrot the clown who performs every day all summer. He does magic tricks, storytelling (in Danish) and he takes time both singing and talking with the children.
The lovers of speed might want to buy a Bakken Pass which means free entry to all of Bakken’s 32 rides. Among those the new 2020 ride Supernova.
It is also possible to buy entrance to just some of the rides, so if you want to spice-up your visit try the old and nostalgic wooden roller-coaster or one of the other rides.
There is plenty of nostalgia if you stop by Korsbæk at Bakken. Here you can a take stroll through the streets of the famous Danish TV series Matador, which takes place in the 1930’s. Walk down the street of Algade where you can look at the beautiful houses and visit the old shops. If you are lucky you might see the beloved characters from the TV series.
In both Korsbæk and the rest of Bakken, it’s easy to find something delicious to eat when you are hungry. There is something for every palate – from the many buffets to á la carte dishes in Bakken’s atmospheric restaurants.
Luckily, Bakken can be visited through the whole year not just during summer. During the fall break and in the weekends before Christmas, Bakken invites you to a harvest festival, scary Halloween and Christmas celebrations. Experience the scary Forrest of Terror, haunted by living creatures, or jump around in the bale of straw labyrinth in front of the Open Air Stage, where there is entertainment for children every day.
For Christmas you can explore Bakken’s cosy Christmas Fair. Here you can kiss you dear ones under the tallest mistletoe in Denmark and see thousands of lights lighting up the beautiful park.
