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.

  • A walk through this park is refreshing. A serene place, very attractive even in winter. Ducks and birds everywhere but the cistern was closed for the season.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great park for walking and relaxing in the sun. Offers also good running routes
  • Beautiful garden with well laid walking pathways. A novel lighting system helps you keep up the jogging pace you choose
