About the project
Tivoli’s major initiative in 2010 was the world of Rasmus Klump. In cooperation with the prize wining American architect, Jumana J Brodersen, and Tivoli’s architect, Jonathan Wright, MONSTRUM has designed and built more than 30 new playground equipments for a 1,300 m2 large playground. The area incorporates playing islands connected by rope ladders, and balancing equipment extending from the ship Mary, the submarine and the raft, and up to the 9 m tall lighthouse.

Rasmus Klump Land at Tivoli
The Rasmus Klump stories tell a life of adventure. Rasmus and his friends sail their ship Mary to discover new land, solve problems for new friends they meet, build things, trade, and play together. At Tivoli, you can become part of the adventure.
Rasmus and his friends have sailed their ship Mary onto an island and started exploring the area, climbing, jumping, swinging and splashing around it. Mary is resting obliquely on the side on the island, which appears to be the hump of Rasmus’ friend the whale. Visitors are splashed with water when the whale blows through the breathing hole. There are splashing drops and sprays of water everywhere on the playground. There are many fun challenges around the whale. You can jump from rock to rock in the shallow water around Mary’s hull and climb the low-hanging ropes hanging down the hull sides. You can also balance on the ropes in the shoreline, climb through barrels and play on the raft.
With ice and blue water, Pingonisia is the home of the penguins. It is an ideal spot for the youngest children. The water drops are tiny, and the slopes are very gentle. You can climb the floating chunks of ice and the gently curved rocks, and play among the tiny water splashes. The seats close to playing area make it an ideal resting place for the parents, who can easily observe the curiously playing small children in the pleasantly enclosed area.
