entrance to dyrehavsbakken
The entrance to Dyrehavsbakken is a restauration of the old one that got its origin a couple of hundred years ago. The history about this small tivoli is that a girl with the name Kirsten Piil once lost her way in these dark forest while being on an adventure from Copenhagen. Suddenly a spring showed her the way back to Copenhagen and the myth where started. Later different trademen filled bottles with water from this spring and sold it in the streets. Maybe because big cities during 16:th and 17:th century had problems getting fresh water to the city. Most of the water you found in the streets or from wells in the city caused different diseases like the plague, typhus and similar. More and more people visited the spring and soon a lot of jesters and other trademen took the opportunity to make some money here. You'll find it in the small village of Klampenborg and if you do not want to go here with bicycle you just use the the s or oeresunds-tog that gets you here in 20 minutes from the centralstation in Copenhagen.
