AIB2019 loop A: Sightseeing

9 km Distance
20 m Ascent
20 m Descent

(5 ratings)

I built this route for the AIB conference. Two pieces of general advice for cycling in Denmark: 1) Stay on the right side of the cycle path to allow overtaking and 2) Use your hands to indicate you want to stop or change directions.

Loop A starts at Nyhavn. Go through Kongens Nytorv (the main square in Copenhagen). Then go straight ahead on Gothersgade, passing Rosenborg Slot and the botanical gardens. At the end you reach the lakes. Turn right on Øster Søgade. At the traffic lights go left over the lake and follow Fredensgade, turning right into Nørre Alle. You then turn right to enter Fælledparken (biggest park in Copenhagen proper) at Edel Sauntes Alle. Turn right at Øster Allee, passing the National and FC Copenhagen Football stadium. At Trianglen continue into Østerbrogade, soon followed by a left into Slagelsegade (take care when crossing here). Turn right at Livjægergade, then a left at Kastelsvej, followed by a right at Fridtjf Nansens Plads. Here you use the cycle bridge to go over the railway line. Continue straight ahead on Langelinie. At the end you rearch the famous little Mermaid. Take a right here and then go past the headquarters of Mærsk, Denmark's largest company into Amaliegade. Turn left to go into Toldbodgade, passing the Queen's castle (Amalienborg). Continue straight ahead to get back to Nyhavn.
