Klampenborg, Sjælland, Denmark

    Situated just north of Copenhagen, Dyrehavsbakken ("The Deer Park Hill"), which is usually called just Bakken ("The Hill"), is the world's oldest amusement park with a history of over 400 years!  Kirsten Piil discovered a natural spring of water here way back in 1583.  The pure water was considered to have curative properties, and people flocked to the park.  In 1698, King Frederik III set up an animal park called Stokkerup Dyrehave, and it was later expanded by his son Christian V.  Even today, the descendants of the deer introduced into the hunting area can be found around the amusement park.

    In the late 1700s, entertainers and innkeepers set up shop around the springs.  The Dyrehavsbakken Tent Owners' Association was formed in 1885, and all current ride operators and shop owners are required to join this old Association.  At the present, 160 businesses are packed into 75,000 square meters of Bakken.
