Bakken - one of the most popular attractions in Denmark
Dyrehavsbakken is presumably the oldest amusement
park in the world. It's thanks to a woman, a Ms. Kirsten Piil
that Dyrehavsbakken, Bakken for short, is at all.
In 1583 Kirsten Piil found a spring right here.
People came from far and near, and where there
are people there are jesters.
And that's how it all begun.
Rides, games and competitions, restaurants, dance and live music. Bakken the fun fair has everything any grown-up
or kid could ever want from a place like this.
It's tradition, it's joy, and it's laughter. In the centre of it all stands Pjerrot, the classic
jester who entered the scene already in 1800.
