The Olympic Park is the all-rounder among the running routes: Whether asphalt or trail, flatland run or challenging climbs on the Olympic Hill or steps - the large park in Munich's north offers it all. And: Passing prominent buildings such as the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Tower or the Olympic Halls, your run becomes a sightseeing trip with sports history at every turn..
From the relaxed, completely car-free jogging lap on wide asphalt paths around the Olympic lake to the complete program for tempo runs or performance tests - for locals and visitors the Olympic Park is every time a running highlight..
An extensive lap through the complete park is about 5 kilometers long.
The English Garden stretches from the northern end of Munich to the historic center of the city and is a paradise for running fans. While you notice that in the often crowded south of Munich's largest park, it is rarely crowded on the paths in the northern part. Yet there's a lot to see here, too: In addition to lush, green meadows and countless trees, some of which are as old as stone, you'll run partly along forest paths along the Isar River. Countless trails tempt you to detour off the asphalt..
Long-distance fans can run to the southern part to the Ludwig Maximilian University and the kiosk "Milchhäusl" and extend the route in the north to Garching. A complete round is then about 30 kilometers long..
You want to start running directly from the MOC Veranstaltungscenter, the location of the OutDoor by ISPO? Then a run up Fröttmaninger Berg is a good idea, from which you can enjoy not only a great view of the Allianz Arena and Munich, but even as far as the Alps on a clear day. A route from the MOC to the mountain is about 4 kilometers long..
While the first half from the MOC leads the Lilienthalallee out of town through a flat urban neighborhood, it then goes to the right along the Burmesterstraße on the Werner-Heisenberg-Allee in the direction of the Allianz Arena. Cross the highway bridge and you'll reach the 75-meter high Fröttmaninger Berg. If you want to extend your lap, you can also make a detour to the impressive Allianz Arena, home of FC Bayern.
Lust for a jump into the cool water? Then the Feringasee in Unterföhring northeast of Munich is the perfect place. Around the bathing lake leads an idyllic gravel path without many meters of altitude, on which a lake round is 2 kilometers long. With detours to other paths, you can extend your lap length but arbitrarily..
After that, either a beer garden invites you to relax or beach volleyball courts to even more sports. Or you just relax on the lakeshore and go for a swim.
As a starting point, the S-Bahn station Johanneskirchen offers itself, from which it goes over meadows and fields to the Feringasee..
North of the Munich city center in the trendy Maxvorstand lies the Old North Cemetery. Here you run between impressive, historic gravestones. No worries: jogging in the Old North Cemetery is explicitly allowed, in contrast to other Munich cemeteries, as there have been no burials in the historic cemetery for a long time and there are no longer any grave usage rights. Nevertheless, the rule is to stay on the paths and be considerate. The morbid charm has long been an insider tip among Munich's running scene. Joggers are the norm here. A complete loop through the cemetery is 700 meters long. At night, the site is unlit..
From the MOC you come the easiest with the subway there. Take the U6 at Freimann station in the direction of Goetheplatz to the station Universität. From there it's a 10-minute walk along Adalbertstraße to Nordfriedhof..
