It’s not like we ever need an excuse to go to Tivoli, but there’s none better than helping the themepark to celebrate its 173rd birthday!

Tivoli is accordingly holding a concert featuring musician guards from the Tambourkorpset, Fanevagten and Musikkorpset.

Of course, Tivoli is rarely shut for long. On September 24, its summer season is closing, but it will soon be open for Halloween from October 13 to November 5.

And then two weeks later, it will be opening its doors for its Christmas season – on November 18. (AD)

Like growing flowers and shrubs, growing veggies is an art that kids can learn about by participating in the cultivation and care of Kongens Køkkenhave – a popular and modern vegetable garden in the city.

Both children and adults are welcome to visit and see how berries, vegetables and edible flowers are grown.

Volunteers can also learn about growing veg in a sustainable manner from a gardener from Tag Tomat. (SBH)

Bring your kids to the Fisketorvet shopping centre to meet Hik, a fun hammershark who loves attention and making kids laugh.

This time Hik is doing a theatrical performance and is eager to show you all his talents.

After that, if your family is still up for more fun, you can stay and listen to wild stories from the depths.

The narrator is a fish expert from Blå Planet who will also reveal fun facts about all the colourful fish in the aquarium, and then you can stay to watch them get their lunch. (AD)

This is a great chance for kids to come and learn about Earth as seen from space in the movie ‘Our Beautiful Planet’.

Presented in a fantastic IMAX format, the film provides a great visual experience and a good understanding of our planet and galaxy.

Filmed from the International Space Station, the movie is produced in collaboration with NASA and shows amazing footage of the planet.

While continuing to explore and gain knowledge about the galaxy, the film also allows kids to develop a deeper connection with the place we all call home. (SBH)
