Bakkehuset is located very close to the green areas of Søndermarken. Søndermarken is designed as an English landscape garden. Here you will find wild plants, long meadow-like grass and even owls in the old trees. The locals use Søndermarken for jogging, walking the dog or just strolling in the hilly and forest filled landscape. In the heart of Søndermarken you will find Cisternerne which today is a famous venue for art exhibitions and other events.
Cisternerne is an old waterreservoir built in 1856-1859 to contribute considerably to the improvement of the water supply of Copenhagen. For many centuries the subterranean chambers were forgotten but are now open to the public and offer world-class art experiences. This year's exhibition in Cisternerne is called SUPERFLEX. With sci-fi elements, the Danish artist collective SUPERFLEX, creates a surreal, yet plausible, scenario where climate change has altered society drastically.
