Running Copenhagen offers running sightseeing in Copenhagen with a local guide. We believe in giving our guests a personal experience, so do not expect a monologue from us about Copenhagen. Instead expect to be chatting most of the way with your guide about life in Copenhagen, politics, restaurants, biking culture, things to do etc. We will of course not let you down in terms of telling you about Copenhagen, so expect to hear lots about the city's history and culture, and don't hold back on any questions you may have. We are here to serve...and have fun.

Happy Running,

Lena

Hi Blazer, I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the run with Signe and yes - an early morning in the weekends spoil you to a very quiet city. One of the reasons why us guides are more than willing to meet at 7.30 am on a Sunday. You were doing us a favour by booking so early... More

Joined the "group" tour on Saturday but I ended up having a private run with Alexandra. It was a chilly 27 degrees when I woke up, and Alexandra brought me an extra layer since I was traveling light from New Orleans and wasn't prepared. I was perfectly warm though and had a delightful time seeing the city as the sun... More

Hi Elanor, Thank you for a great review and for running with Alexandra despite the cold. Luckily you were the same size as Alexandra so the wardrobe options were plentiful :-).

My boyfriend and I did this running tour during our mini-break to Copenhagen last weekend and couldn't recommend the tour highly enough. It started early which meant that we got to see all the sights before they got super-busy, and it left the rest of the day free for us to explore the city. Our guide Alexandra was friendly and...

I will never forget that there are three "i"'s in Christiania - thanks to our tour guide, Jens! He was great! Jens was very knowledgeable about the city and the Freetown of Christiania.

I did both a private running tour of Christiana and a group tour of Copenhagen. I highly recommend both, depending on your interests and budget.

A tailor-made 15k sight-seeing tour that took in many popular sights and gave me a chance to see so much that I would have missed as a tourist walking round the city. We started at 7.00 am and sunrise coincided with a short photo stop at the Little Mermaid. This really is the best way to see the city. Lena... More

Hi Peter, I will tell you a secret.

And it was a true pleasure to enjoy it with someone who was equally impressed by it. I... More

I was paired up with Signe for a very early Saturday run. I'd escaped to Copenhagen with my wife for a Valentine's weekend break, so thought I would leave her in bed, head out at 7 and be back for 8.30 with coffee and pastries.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
