What you'll do

There is no better way to experience Copenhagen than by running. This running tour will introduce you to all the sights and history of Copenhagen, as well as give an insight into Danish lifestyle, culture and society. And then its easy going and fun! In 1 1/2 hour, this 8 km run will lead you past the main sights of Copenhagen incl. The Little Mermaid, The Royal Palace, Nyhavn and the Parliament. We will also run places where only tourists that are lost go and places where only true Copenhageners visit. I will be your running encyclopedia, so anything you want to know - just ask away. I will happily point out my favourite bakery, favourite coffee place and favourite restaurants. And of course share insights on the Danish lifestyle - our happiness, our hygge, our green cities, and work/life balance. You will have all the Must See sights done on this tour and burned enough calories to justify for at least one Danish Pastry... or beer :-) Note: this is not an elite training session, so no need to have anxiety about pace, gear etc. We run a leisurely 6 min/km (10 min/mile) and stop along the way. It's all about having a fun and unique run in Copenhagen - nothing more :-)

Hi there - thank you for looking at my tours. Here is me: happy runner, passionate Copenhagener and a sucker for good food and wine (very handy to be a runner). My tours are easy going, informative and fun. I share "my" city - its history, its urban development, the latest politics, fun anecdotes and you can ask me anything, so don't be shy! :-) I have guided more than 4000 kilometers worth of running tours, and am the co-founder of Go! Running Tours. In short I am ridiculously passionate (some would say nerdy) about guiding kick arse running tours and having fun at the same time.

Where you'll be

We are off to explore the main sights: The Little Mermaid, Nyhavn, The Royal Palace and the Parliament. All spiced up with history and anecdotes. But that's not all. The local insights and a scenic route is what makes this tour :-) We will pass the secret mosaic, my favourite bakery (take note :-)), a handful of famous film locations, and I promise to discreetly point out if we pass a member of the Royal family - it happens surprisingly a lot.

Things to keep in mind
