If you are looking for some good running routes to explore Copenhagen, then look no further! These routes are very safe but keep an eye out for bicyclists.

Nyhavn-Amalienborg-Little Mermaid

As you can tell from all of the pictures below, this route was one of my favorites because it shows you several landmarks throughout the city – Amalienborg, Nyhavn, Kastellet, the Little Mermaid, Frederik’s Church and more! I started at the Copenhagen Island Hotel and ran about six miles but this run can be easily adjusted based on where you are staying.

If you’re near the Copenhagen Lakes, follow the path around the three lakes and see why this is one of the most popular routes in the city. This will be about 4 miles!

Amager Faelled

Here’s a route for when you want to get out of the city. I received this recommendation from a fellow runner on Instagram and loved it! I ran about 4 miles but there are a ton of trails so you can make this run longer. Pro tip: don’t stop too many times to take pictures because you will get bitten by bugs (oops!).
