Tivoli's main entrance doesn't look mobbed in this photo, but be prepared to stand in line interminably at the ticket window during high season--unless you're carrying the Copenhagen tourist office's CPHCARD, which will let you bypass the ticket line. (Just show your card to the ticket collector at the park gates.)
Tivoli has gardens, lakes, bandshells, fountains, and streets like these (which are hybrids of a village and an amusement park).

The thatched-roof restaurant Faergekroen overlooks a lake.
Nearby, Pirateriet--a family-friendly restaurant with a pirate motif--serves Caribbean-themed meals on the frigate Sct. Georg IIII.
The Chinese Tower is another restaurant on Tivoli Lake. It serves a Chinese buffet and Danish dishes, and its Chinese chefs come from Hong Kong.
Nimb, in a Moorish-themed building formerly known as The Bazaar, opened in 2008 as a boutique hotel. You can observe chefs preparing your meal in Restaurant Nimb, or you can whip out your platinum card for a meal in the Restaurant Herman (named after Nimb's executive chef, Thomas Herman).
Take time out from eating and amusement rides to watch the daily Tivoli parade, featuring a children's drill team and a pint-sized version of the royal family.
