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

Not only does Lena and her crew make sure you get a great workout, they provide a running/sight seeing adventure that that you will never forget. Although I've been... More

My husband and I recently did a 10 day trip through Scandinavia with Copenhagen as our last stop. I had an 18 mile run planned for that weekend, so when I was looking up bike tours and saw Lena's running tour (and that she'd do up to a half marathon), I was stoked and booked almost immediately. I had an... More

We have done many tours in 25 countries. This was by far one of our favorites. Firstly, Lena was gracious and helpful from our first contact. We booked two running tours - 5k for our family (including 10-year-old twins) and 15k for my husband. Lena gave us tips about the city, our hotel, and the neighboring areas. She even sent... More

On my first morning of a two-week trip, I ran the 10K route with Lena and was delighted as she welcomed me to Denmark and made me feel right at home! I equally loved running, learning the history of the sites we were running by and stopping at (where she'd snap photos), and the engaging conversation and laughs with Lena!... More

Fantastic! Lena is not only knowledgeable about the city's history, but also an engaging and entertaining individual as well. I highly recommend this tour as a way to jump into the city and feel like you are ready to absorb the culture at its fullest!

I booked a public tour (8KM) but because the other customers canceled the book, in the end it was only me. It was a great time to have a running tour with Lena, she took the picture for me in every important attraction and introduced me the story behind the theme. I highly recommend this tour for everyone who will... More

While we were too late for the Copenhagen sunrise in summer, our 6am start on the 8km tour was the perfect way to start the day. Lena is very 'Copenhagen cool' and shared lots of Danish history, stories and local knowledge with us. In this distance we saw many of the 'must see' sights of Copenhagen - without the crowds....

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.
