The Cisterns in Søndermarken ParkResting deep beneath the green lawns of Søndermarken Park is a cavernous world that never sees the light of day. Enveloped in darkness, these damp and cold surroundings call ancient cathedrals and murky catacombs...more

Had a great time here. It was one of our first stops in Copenhagen and made for a fun first impression. Creative, understated, art exhibit in very unusual underground space. Worth a visit. Included with Copenhagen Card.
We were there for the Jeppe Hein installation “In is the Only Way Out”. It was beautiful and spellbinding and was a perfect integration of art and place to create a unique experience. Absolutely worth going.
Situated opposite the zoo this place is easy to get to and worth a visit if have a spare half hour. It is a huge underground water tank converted into a sound art installation. Various exhibits emit different sounds and some react to your presence....More
Very interesting art exhibition in an unusual place
We visited the exhibition:
IN IS THE ONLY WAY OUT -BY JEPPE HEIN
this should continue until 30th November 2018 and I could highly recommend it for all type of visitors
We saw Cisterne on Travel Man last year so we wanted to go. Unfortunately, as I am not a tortured sixth-former I found the current exhibition underwhelming and wished I’d seen last year’s water installation instead.
I was interested in the actual space and the...More
We got there right when they opened so we were virtually the only ones there. This former reservoir for the city of Copenhagen is now a museum. Presently there is an exhibit that combines some interesting aspects of light and sound that enhances the surroundings....More
Changing exhibitions at the Cisterns are usually very interesting due to the setting - the old water reservoir for copenhagen/frederiksberg. A bit spooky and very beautiful situated underneath the Søndermarken park

Thank you for visiting, Marianne, and thank you for taking the time for writing these words. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the exhibition and its setting!
This place makes for a great art exhibition space. Inside the old city cistern (which would make for an amazing movie location, or photo shoot space as we turned it into), you can walk around, learn a little about the history of it, and see...More
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find
Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
