Ah Copenhagen ... Modern, historical, elected "Green Capital", ecological, flat and crisscrossed by canals, the Danish capital has everything to seduce the runner. Throughout this course, you will discover the old town and the Christiania neighborhood, its canals and its dutch style houses. You'll run along the waterfront to the iconic Little Mermaid, and learn how she lost her legs. You will run the citadel, historic neighborhoods, and discover castles, statues with original stories. Impossible not to be charmed by the serenity that can be felt in this unique city.
*Alternative route : you can shorten the route by 2.5km, not passing through Christiania neighborhood.
