A must in Copenhagen even if you go there for a walk. The Christmas period is magical. The skip-the-line ticket allows you to quickly enter the park because there are people when it opens.

Booking online is quick and easy. It's fast at the entrance. Have your CovPass ready (digital) and your online tickets.
