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 museum dedicated to modern glass art located in some 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, Cisternerne,which has both a permanent collection and hosts special exhibitions. 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.

  • A nice green space in a busy city. Not all that quite, but the park has nice shaded pathways with benches. It's a good place for a picnic or let the kids run loose. 
  • A good venindetur in the Green, we enjoyed the area, Sun and do you need a toilet, it is in the Yellow House. It is clean and neat. Are you hungry or get the urge for something to drink on the road is Beamed House completely perfect for it. Here you can also obtain his thirst, the dog, however, just outside the fence:-)

  • Great Park right between Vesterbro, Valby and Frederiksberg. View to some of the animals from Zoo. Steep hills and old trees. Art exhibition in old underground water resoviors. Good place for running and walking. Snowy hills in the winter for the kids
  • Love this park, cosey and chill with a lot of trees. If you go to Frederiksberg Garden on the other side of the road, you can get to see elephants without paying the Zoo ticket.
  • By far the nicest Park in Valby and in the area, less people than Frederiksberg Have and the green areas are beautiful in the summer. They have a special running rute, check the big entrances. There are also 2 outdoor fitness areas. In the summer the host a 2 day Hip-Hop festival. That is awesome! Great for picnics in the summer, but be prepared to sit on the grass. I would recommend everybody to take a walk thru Søndermarken.
  • Great place for run. Be aware of ice and snow during winter!
  • Lovely place for a nice walk!
