Bakken: The World's Oldest Amusement Park

Denmark: The RainBakken: The World's Oldest Amusement Park

Location

Believe it or not Bakken, the world's oldest amusement park, dates back to the year 1583 when a young woman named Kirsten Piil discovered a natural spring in the vicinity of Copenhagen. This subsequently attracted large crowds in the warmer months and soon entertainers and hawkers followed.

With its rich history, Bakken is a unique and nostalgic attraction, and unlike it's more famous cousin the Tivoli Gardens in central Copenhagen, entry to Bakken is free of charge.

We love the fact that Bakken features as a setting for The Rain, Season 2, turning a popular family attraction...

...into a postapocalpytic nightmare.
