Deep below Søndermarken you’ll find the Denmark’s only art museum without proper daylight. The Cisterns: Museum of Modern Glass Art. Down here you get a sense of echoing eternity in the enormous water reservoirs, which formerly provided Copenhagen’s clean water. In the cathedral-like hall you may explore the wonderfully beautiful works of glass and strange sandstone sculptures from the 18th Century almost undisturbed, and you’ll probably want to keep that loved one in a very close embrace – it is quite chilly down here! Romantic ideas inspired by two souls in love will only be further emphasised by the current exhibition ‘Modesty Violette’ by the glass artist Julius Weiland, who creates glowing and sensual images in neon.
