In 2001 they were converted into a museum for modern glass art, Cisternerne,which has both a permanent collection and hosts special exhibitions.

  • Nice park for walking and a little fresh air. Good possibilities for running routes with interactive lighting, which you can follow if you want to run in a particular pace. Possibility of free storage in lockers for coats etc. There are also 2 training places with different body-weight machines in the Park.

  • Here is everything you could want from a forest in the city. Lovely hills, scenic trails, playgrounds, illuminated jogging tracks, training areas, hundefri area and a look to the Zoo. A tour around in søndermarken can easily take a few hours.

  • 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
  • A good place to bake in the sun or go for a run. I really love the majestic trees there. Also has an underground art exhibit inside the park.
  • A very nice and big park, about a fifteen minute walk from Central Station. It's got some foresty parts and also a large grassy area. The zoo takes up a bit of it.
  • Fantastic place to go for a walk. There are plenty of good spots for exercising and doing parkour.
  • Great for runs, but be aware of potholes
