Those Places Thursday: Mom's 1953 Europe Road Trip - Tivoli Gardens

From Mom's Europe trip diary, in the "PLACES VISITED" section:
September 11, Friday – Road between Kungsbacka [Sweden] and Copenhagen, Denmark
Had difficulty starting car - eventually it worked.  Drove to Helsingborg where we caught ferry to Denmark (20 min. ride).  Ate in Helsingor [Denmark] and then drove to Copenhagen.  Hotels crowded but managed to get rooms in a pensional.*  Went downtown to eat and then walked through Tivoli which is an amusement park lit with beautiful lights and lanterns.  Think I will like Copenhagen and someday would like to come back.  No difficulty through customs.  Had some real good beer - Tuborg Gold Seal.

* According to the "HOTELS STOPPED AT" section of the trip diary, my mother and her friends stayed at the Juul Jensen Pensional in Copenhagen, Denmark, this night.

Here are some photos of Tivoli Gardens:
