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,

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. On our private tour, he ensured no one fell behind and was funny and full of stories and interesting facts. This was my second tour with Running... More

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.

I booked the 15Km private guided tour and this was the best thing i did during my staying in Copenhagen!! Lena, my guide and is very friendly and... More

My wife and I met with Lena who took us out on a nice Sunday tour around the city where we learned lots of local tips, city history, and to look out for women walking dogs (you'll have to ask her). The tour is so much fun and such a unique way to explore the city and Lena, our guide,... More

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

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. Overnight the temperature plummeted and snow was everywhere. But what a fantastic experience and brilliant... More

Hi Jay, Thank you so much for the great feedback and I remember Signe returning from the tour being on complete high over the great run that you had and snowy Copenhagen. but Jay - - - - what were you thinking to sneak out at 7 am for a run on your romantic Valentine's weekend ?!?.

Well I'm still buzzing from my tour around Copenhagen with Henrik. I asked if it was possible to have a bit of a geeky tour of the recent scandi drama locations over a half marathon tour so I could keep my training up ahead of upcoming races. It didn't disappoint !! Full of great locations as well as taking in... More

For those looking to get some exercise while also sight seeing this a must do. The process was very easily coordinated and Lena is a wonderful running companion (as are all the guides I'm sure!). So much so that the 22 km that we ran went by in the blink of an eye. 5 stars all the way around...I'd love... More

I had the pleasure to run with Lena on my sunrise tour. She was full of information about all of the incredible sights we passed, everything Copenhagen and Denmark, and also insider tips for some great restaurants, cafes and shopping. She is so friendly and personable and also an awesome runner! I wish we could run together everyday, Lena! Usually... More

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.
