Bakken is well worth a trip, especially with your children, as most of the rides cater towards children in the 3-12 age bracket. easily reached by train from copenhagen (get off at Klampenborg), there are lots of traditional Danish food options, as well a beautiful park that the amusement park is located in that is excellent for walks through the ancient forest, as well as picnics. In addition, a horse drawn carriage ride around the park is a nice addition as well

We took the train to Klampenborg to experience a proper Danish amusement park and see something slightly off the beaten tourist track. The park was definitely mainly filled with local people and there was a very pleasant atmosphere as we strolled around amongst the variety of games and rides in the park. As the sterling to Krone exchange rate is particularly poor for us we couldn't bring ourselves to fork out for too many rides but we did have a go on the large wooden roller coaster in the middle of the park and had a great time on it. The wristbands are probably the best thing to do if you are going to partake in a number of rides and plenty of kids seemed to have these.

The amusement park is set within a large deer park which seemed to offer a variety of walks so there appears to be plenty to do even if not interested in the funfair. The train from Copenhagen took around 15 minutes.

Bakken is a small, but very cosy park with good atmosphere, lots of activities which is perfect for kids aged 3-13. Try the White Horse Restaurant for a tasteful buffet.

When visiting as a tourist, you immediately notice that mostly only Danish people come here. But the people in the stalls and attractions speak good English to help you. If you have small children, the way to go is the wristband which will give them access to all children's rides for up to ten times. This will keep then busy for a while, and queues are not long most of the time. At the bigger rides, sometimes there are single rider lanes, and they can help you save a lot of time. The park has a nice atmosphere and truly takes you back in time. Lots of restaurants and little places you can have a snack or a drink.
