  • Exciting exhibition space underground. However, the real exhibition, in order to take advantage of the space.

  • This site is a splendid location that often hosts art exhibitions. It is located in a beautiful park. Worth a visit!  more »
  • Bycykels rented in Copenhagen, and drove to the cisterns. Available in a nice park and is glad they are open. Is worth a visit but not really cool.

  • Nice experience. However a little short and thus a little under expectation. Customer friendly since free coffee is being offered. If you are afraid of dark places keep away. For the others it is recommendable.
  • Unique and special setting for a gallery. Usually only one show at a time, so experience may be different depending on what is on. Really let your eyes adapt to the darkness, it makes a difference after a few minutes. Not well adapted for those with little mobility, and small children.
  • Underground art space in an old disused water cistern. The space is amazing but exactly how much you'll enjoy it will depend on the art being exhibited. I visited during the light exhibition with projectors displaying small video loops and stationary images onto the walls
  • Very spooky and a bit disorientating but a fascinating place. Not sure I'd have gone if it weren't free on the Copenhagen card but glad I went as it very interesting.
  • The location is what really makes this contemporary art gallery stand out. It's situated inside old underground water reservoirs so it works as a historic monument in the same time. And the surrounding park also invites for a walk before or after to enjoy nature as well
