The Cisterns, the former water reservoir beneath the green grass of Søndermarken park across from Frederiksberg Castle, is a unique exhibition venue in Copenhagen.

Buried deep beneath Søndermarken's green grass in the Frederiksberg area of Copenhagen is a massive underground space, where daylight never reaches. Here, you will find a dark, cold and moist underground world resembling the environment of cathedrals and gloomy catacombs.

Once the spacious venue was the city's cisterns filled with 16 million liters of drinking water, but now the water is gone and has been replaced by art exhibitions and various events about the architecture and unique climate.
