The Munich Marathon is the place to be!!

Whoever has competed in one of the editions of MUNICH MARATHON knows that tingling sensation. The concentration and tension of the runners is tangible; only subsiding when the starter’s pistol finally sounds and your sightseeing tour through Munich starts right away.

Authentic Bavaria at the marathon in Munich. With their starting shots, fireworks send over ten thousand runners on their loop through the cosmopolitan city with heart. The route is like a sightseeing tour. It goes by the most beautiful sights in the city. It starts at the Olympia park.

Munchen Marathon routes

Marathon: The sightseeing tour starts at a fast pace: Olympiapark, Englischer Garten, Bogenhausen Art Nouveau villas, Munich Gasteig, Isar Bridge, Gärtnerplatz, Sendlinger Straße, Marienplatz, Rathaus, Bavarian State Opera, Residenz, Munich Pinakotheken, Odeonsplatz, Theatinerkirche, Königsplatz, Siegestor, Leopoldstraße. Countless highlights line up before the Olympic Stadium comes into sight. Goose bumps come to mind: in the large Marathon Gate, the runners dive into a scenario of fog, music and colored light. On the last 300 meters and accompanied by the cheers of the spectators, you turn onto the home stretch of the Olympic Stadium. G’schafft, as they say in Bavaria! And then? Please smile! Everyone is a winner!

Half marathon: starts in Bogenhausen on Denninger Straße. The start takes place at 13:30 – so that runners with an end time of 3:00 hours can finish the distance. The route leads on the original marathon route in a southerly direction to the Olympic Park. The highlight is the finish in the big marathon goal in the Olympic Stadium. G’schafft!

10km: Despite a short distance you can feel the Munich 10 kilometer run: The heart beats before the start and at the finish line. And, as with the long distance, the ten kilometers are also valid: a parcour like a sightseeing tour. Only … shorter! After starting in the Olympic Park, you walk through Schwabing to the Leopoldstraße, turn in front of the Siegestor and continue on the same route back to the Olympiapark – into the Olympiastadion. At least here everyone gets goose bumps, followed by a winning smile.
