Sightrunning in Munich: Cultural Tour at the MUNICH MARATHON
To discover a metropolis in an active way with running shoes instead of sitting in crowded travel busses is no insider’s tip anymore.
By: Munich Marathon
The course through Bavaria’s capital displays the diversity of the metropolis: Start at the Olympiapark, green kilometres through the English Garden, modern scenery in Munich’s east (starting here, also half marathon), along the Rosenheimer Street, then running past popular sights of the city, such as the Town Hall, Opera, Residenz, Pinakothek and Siegestor. The course could be taken out of a traveller’s tour-guide book. Running along the Leopold Street, the cultural run ends in the Olympiapark. The tour’s highlight for half marathon, marathon and relay runners is the finish in the Olympic Stadium – goose bumps at the end of a running sightseeing together with thousands of like-minded people.
And those who are not planning on setting a personal track record can enjoy the MUNICH MARATHON with all its great aspects. Spending a few more days in the city is a great chance to see the previous impressions a second time, in a slower pace.
