Tivoli Friheden is situated in the outskirts of Aarhus city, surrounded by both city and beech forest. The place has been a popular spot for day outings since 1904. In that year, waiter Hans Rising opened ‘Restaurant Terrassen’ where he served lunch and Danish snaps while the guests were being entertained by musicians and other events. Already in those days, the place was nicknamed ‘the Freedom’, which translates into Friheden and has given name to the Tivoli.
In 1958, the area was turned into a theme park, which was inaugurated eight years later and given the name used today, Tivoli Friheden.
The theme park is visited by 300,000 people annually and offers a large variety of rides and events for people of all ages. The newest attraction is 'the Typhoon', a 14 m tall and 420 m long roller coaster, which speeds ahead making 47 km/h. This summer, Tivoli Friheden presents an even wilder roller coaster named ‘the Cobra’.
