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,

Hi Marc, Pfew...I always get nervous when guests book because they have read these reviews, as the expectations are high. That is why I am extra chuffed with your response, despite hitting a dead-end within 350 meters of leaving your flat :-). I swear they have changed the path layout :-) It was a real pleasure showing you Copenhagen and... More

We ran a 10k with Alexandra on our first day in Copenhagen, it was a great way to see the city. Alexandra was really informative, enthusiastic and friendly whilst also being professional. She also emailed us some recommendations for dinner and drinks which was really helpful. Would highly recommend, a definite highlight of our trip.

Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your review and great to hear that you enjoyed the tour with Alexandra. I can reveal that Alexandra really enjoyed as well (at least that what she told me ;-)), and if there is something that Alexandra is well versed in, its food and drinks :-). Thanks again for running with us, and we hope... More

Although I had run in many places around the city, I really didn't have any information or history about many of the main Copenhagen landmarks. Lena was such a great guide and provided many facts as well as background stories that made this very interesting and engaging. I highly recommend that if you are a runner of any level, that...

Hi Don, The pleasure was all mine, and it was great to both share Copenhagen insights with you as well as hear about your life in the US.

Lena is a very warm, accommodating guide who naturally adjusts to your desired pace. She is a terrific story teller who offers both historical and currrent social commentary about this fantastic city. The XL Tour gave me a great mix of sites, including the neighborhoods that I'd otherwise not see. The sauna at the end was icing on the cake.... More

A running tour is a great way to start your tour of Copenhagen. Our run with Lena provided a great overview of the city and helped us determine what areas we'd like to spend more time in and which just needed the quick overview. We also found a beautiful park area that we would not otherwise have found that we... More

Lena ran at our pace and catered the tour to our specific interests, like politics, podcasting and sustainability to name a few. Not to mention, my group was made up of silly 25 year old guys, and Lena kept up with our silliness, exchanging jokes and witticisms back and forth with us.

Hi Jordan, Thank you so much for the review and also for booking this tour for your friends. It was a pleasure showing you Nørrebro and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to your podcast covering the tour. I think the wittiest thing on the tour was "Joe and the Juice - that is like the male version of hooters". That truly... More

I had a long layover in Copenhagen, so I booked an early morning run around the city center. Lena was a wonderful, knowledgable guide and a pleasure to talk to. She showed me things that I would have NEVER done without her, like running through Christiansborg's secret door and prancing around in the royal riding hall. I cannot recommend this... More

If you're relatively fit, you MUST do this! Definitely the highlight of our weekend in Copenhagen. We booked the 8km private Christiania tour so we saw something we wouldn't have usually seen, a little off the beaten track/usual tourist areas. Lena was fantastic - her English is second to none. She met us at our hotel and off we went!... More

We booked a private tour with Lena. She tailored the pace to suit and was really knowledgeable about the city; both the history and the best places to eat and drink. Thoroughly recommend to any one visiting the city.

Neighbourhood 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.
