What You Can Expect
All that is required of you is to show up wearing running clothes and a good pair of sneakers with a bottle of water. Below is a sample itinerary:
Jog around central Copenhagen’s wide and open streets, passing the seat of the Danish parliament – Christiansborg Palace – and seeing the Little Mermaid Statue. Amalienborg Castle is nearby, so stop to catch your breath and learn about Queen Margrethe II of Denmark who lives inside the eye-catching palace.
Besides the city’s big-name sights, your route also takes in some of Copenhagen’s distinctive green scenery. Explore parks like Frederiksberg Gardens, and pass alongside the picture-perfect canals that weave their way through the city.
Enjoy frequent stops, if you wish, to chat with your guide and learn about Copenhagen’s culture and history. Hear insider tips for places in Copenhagen to exercise independently, and then work your way back to the start point where your run finishes.
My husband and I loved this tour. Lena, our tour guide made the tour fun and interesting and we felt very safe running around the city. We enjoyed running though a couple of parks (we probably wouldn't have found on our own) and seeing the major tourist highlights. Lena sent us our route map after the run and any pictures she took of us, which was a nice touch. Lena met us at our downtown hotel and accommodated our schedule. I wish more cities offered running tours like this one.
We had a great time running with Lena. She is an absolute delight and knows so much about Copenhagen and is proud to share it. We had covered more highly-visited parts of Copenhagen on our bikes earlier in our stay. So we went to some of the newly gentrified areas of the city. We really enjoyed the Jaeggersborggade neighborhood. We saw elementary schools, and new residential construction, and eclectic restaurants. We also visited the cemetery of Soren Kierkegaard and HC Andersen. She had something to say at every stop that was enlightening. The next time I'm in Copenhagen, I hope to run again with Lena. She's great!
