Søndermarken is a park in Frederiksberg on the border to Valby and the Carlsberg area in Copenhagen, Denmark. It shares much of its history with Frederiksberg Gardens from which it is separated only by Roskildevej. Cisternerne, an underground venue for art exhibitions in the former cisterns, are located inside the park.HistorySøndermarken was founded and landscaped at the same time as Frederiksberg Gardens.Buildings & featuresCisternerneSøndermarken is the site of three underground cisterns which used to be part of Copenhagen's earliest water supply system. In 2001 they were converted into a museum for modern glass art, but has since 2013 been a part of the Frederiksberg Museums, acting as a venue for art exhibitions, Cisternerne. The museum, which is located near Roskildevej, opposite the main entrance to the Zoo, is topped by two entrance pavilions and a fountain from 1890.Memorial MoundThe Memorial Mound is located on a slope and was erected in 1925 to commemorate Danish immigration to America. In the 1920s, Danish-Americans in the United States conceived the idea to erect a memorial in Copenhagen as a counterpoint to the traditions surrounding Rebild Hills celebrations in Jutland.

    Whichever way you decide to visit this park, you are certainly sure to spend an hour or so in a wonderful green space in Copenhagen. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby.  more »

    Plenty of room to play and picnic, jogging track, toboggan runs, good exercise tools. Lacking a real playground and then there are sometimes too many loose dogs.

    Beautiful park with underground tanks as one of the surprises. Another gem is the pond with a bridge and a House that is hidden and the seen on the walk trail near Roskildevej.

    Excellent park for running, with a 2,5 km loop with hills. It also has some nice green areas to relax, have a picnic or play games.

    The park is nice, but we went to visit the cisterns. They were very neat, but it only takes about 20 minutes to explore and there is a charge for it. Maybe a little too pricey for the value.

    Beautiful garden with well laid walking pathways. A novel lighting system helps you keep up the jogging pace you choose

    Great park to do various activities. It is large enough to find a quiet place to sleep or read, or play soccer or frisbee with friends, eat, play with the dogs...

    Amazing park. A favorite amongst joggers and couples strolling their babies around.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
