What people are saying:

Located in an abandoned underground cistern, two exquisite glass pyramids are the entrance signs. In the reservoir that was once filled with 1.6 million liters of drinking water, natural light is almost invisible. Artificial lighting creates unique saturated colors for 50 glass artworks, and the unpolished granite walls and moist air contrast sharply with the fragile glass. Glass paintings are all created by well-known artists. Please bring a warm coat when visiting! The highest temperature in the museum is only 9 degrees Celsius.

    The Cisternerne

    Once you pay the fare you head down into the cistern and you change out your shoes into a pair of Wellies/Rainboots, be sure to bring or wear a pair of socks. It was an interesting experience. Ver...

    Don’t go out of your way.

    Travelled from Radhusplasden to Frederiksberg for this, walked 20 minutes from the metro station. Was disappointed upon arrival, can walk round in 5-10 minutes. Water is around 25cm high and there is ...

    "WOW FACTOR"

    Best underground attraction. you will not feel like coming out of the place. the setup was really so cool and scary, and the sounds give life to the place. 200% recommend to see this place.
