From moat to Tivoli Gardens

It's hard to tell but until the 1840's this was part of the fortifications around Copenhagen. Actually this lake was the moat just outside the western gate. When the inner fortifications were demolished because the city needed space to expand, this area was bought by George Carstensen to build his amusement park, the Tivoli Gardens. To this day Tivoli is one of the top sightseeing places in Denmark with its gardens, amusement rides and restaurants. In the coming time I'll show you some more photos of Tivoli.
