Last Friday I was invited on a running tour of Copenhagen with Lena from http://www.running-copenhagen.dk/
This is because I am going to become a running sight seeing guide for Running Copenhagen!
I met Lena at the town hall square at 10am and started on a very interesting and talkative running tour :-)
We ran up to Christiansborg which is the parliament building. Then we ran down by Nyhavn and along the water front, past the queens palaces and all the way up to the little mermaid.
Then through one park, over a road and into Kongens Have (the kings gardens). This is a large public park which is a great place for a picnic on a warm day :-) This park is also where Rosenborg Slot (castle) is situated.
The last part of the run takes us by The Round Tower which you can go to the top of and get a great view of Copenhagen. Then we ran past the university and down to Gammel Torv/Nytorv (the old and new squares). And finally past the court house and back to the town hall square.
All the while we are running Lena is telling me about the history of the city, some good places to eat and drink, and also some funny and interesting little stories :-)
We stop at the main sites for photos and to hear more about them.
The tour lasts around one and a half hours, is about 8 kilometres and only costs 150kr.
I enjoyed this sight seeing experience very much and highly recommend it if you visit Copenhagen.
You never know, maybe I will be your guide :-)
