Frederiksberg Garden & Søndermarken
Frederiksberg Have and Søndermarken are two romantic gardens that surround Frederiksberg Palace.
Frederiksberg Garden’s history dates all the way back to the end of the 17th century, and up through the 18th it was a large baroque garden. Only a few elements of that time now remain – namely, the terraces to the north of the palace. Frederiksberg Garden is now a landscape garden in the romantic style, with the expression that it was given when it was changed from the baroque garden to the landscaped romantic garden in the period between 1798 and 1804.
Søndermarken has a parallel history, but is now also a romantic landscaped wooded garden, with echoes of the avenue structures from the baroque period. The heritage elements in Søndermarken have been recreated and re-interpreted in connection with the Life and Light project in Søndermarken, which took place between 2012 and 2014.
