Address
Neighborhood: Frederiksberg
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.

Opposite Hill House Museum it's a marvellous extensive area of green and flora. Plus some notable attractions.

One such is the imaginative Cisternerne, an art gallery underground in the former water cisterns.

Grand pathways make for relaxing strolls wending the way along by the majestic trees.

If you want to experience other than the obligatory walk through the pedestrian street or or just need a break then visit one of Copenhagen's many beautiful natural areas for example Søndermarken. Discover among other things, a Norwegian log cabin and a water source cave.
You can discover the memorial mound raised by Danish Americans, or the cistern once was the water pools, whilst also ensuring the Copenhagen water supply of clean Water.
If you live in Copenhagen you can follow the changing seasons. One have the oppertunity for many good experiences at all times of the year. There is often exciting music events going on. There is a jogging path and in general good opportunities for exercise, In Winter time go sledging or sking. Or just lie in the sun, bring a picnic, play, etc

for example.

Søndermarken was founded and landscaped at the same time as Frederiksberg Gardens. It is a great place for a walk all year round and for a picnic during summer. I use to have my PE lessons in the park during my school time.
It is a popular park with possibility for both natural and cultural experiences under the open sky in the hilly, wooded landscape.
Open to the public since 1852 and the lawns are used among other thing used to concerts, film experiences, art projects and school sports days. It is the site of an underground cisterns that to day funktion as an exhibition space. At the zoo end stands a statue of Adam Oehlenschläger, one of the central persons of the Danish Golden Age.
Well situated close to the ZOO and Carlsberg visitor center.

We spent about an hour here looking around and lay on the grass reading our books, it was a lovely day and we had just come from the zoo. There is a bus stop right outside that was very cheap that took us right back to the central station.

Nice park with long alleys and grass located across the street from the main entrance to the Zoo. Under the park there is also the Cisternere gallery in the old water storage system which used to house Copenhagen's fresh water

We bought our grocery store breakfast here and had a lovely picnic before seeing the cisterns. Afterwards we found the park to be a lively spot to just lay in the sun before jumping back in our bikes. Very relaxing space.

This is the place where you want to go, if you need silence and wonderful nature. The garden is lying side by side to Copenhagen Zoo and you can take a walk around the garden, sit down on the grass where you want and have a wonderful relaxing moment.

A park worth a visit. The signage is only in Danish so take a guide book. A trip to the cisterns is a must. Worth combing with other things in the area such as the zoo and The Palace gardens.

This is part of the old domain of the nearby Palace. We took a walk and saw half of the park, the half near the zoo. Hilly Park with beautiful grass and trees.
