Happy Birthday to Carstensen

This weekend Tivoli in Copenhagen celebrates the 200th birthday of founder George Carstensen. He was the one that convinced king Christian VIII that it was a brilliant idea to open the amusement park on the fortified glacis just outside the west gate of Copenhagen in 1843. With almost 4 million visitors every year it is by far the most popular attraction in Denmark.
