If you haven't put on your jogging shoes yet, you should do so as soon as possible. Whether hiking, running, jogging, Nordic walking or simply taking a walk - Berlin offers ideal jogging trails. With its many parks, Berlin offers good opportunities to prepare for the running season. For my new jogging map I scouted for healthy hidden gems in Berlin as well as jogging trails in Berlin – so you get a sneak peek today: Here are my "Top 5 jogging trails in Berlin".
Jogging trail through Tiergarten
Runners will find plenty of space in this park and on hot days there will also be shade for a relaxed run. You can decide for yourself how big or small this is. One suggestion within the park is to run past the Victory Column, the Soviet Memorial in the Tiergarten, the Brandenburg Gate and the Luisen Monument. After running, a cool drink will tempt you in the Café am Neuen See.
Start: S3, S5, S7, S9 Tiergarten
End: Café am Neuen See
Length: 5,6 km
Jogging trail through Tempelhofer Feld
Airplanes used to take off and land on this field, today athletes use the extensive and varied circuit for running. One lap around the Tempelhof field is about 6 kilometres. If you wish, you can follow the route marked with purple dots, then you will pass a sports park, the barbecue areas, the bird sanctuary and the vegetable gardens. Berliners grow salad, flowers and carrots in wooden boxes and discarded bathtubs. If you still have energy for two more kilometres and a few climbs, walk along the Columbiadamm on the right and behind the mosque on the left into the Volkspark Hasenheide.
Start: U6, S41, S42, S46 Tempelhof
End: U6, S41, S42, S46 Tempelhof
Length: 6 km
From the S-Bahn station Treptower Park via the Puschkinallee, the Soviet Memorial to the Island of Youth and along the Spree back to the S-Bahn station Treptower Park, this varied running route runs through one of Berlin's most beautiful parks. The path, lined with willows, is perfect for warm spring days and at the same time offers protection from the sun.
Tip: If you are exhausted and want to recharge your batteries, you can do it on the island of youth (after about 3 km)!
Start: S41, S42, S8, S85 Treptower Park
End: S41, S42, S8, S85 Treptower Park
Length: 4,5 km
Government District Berlin
Running on water soothes. In the middle of Berlin, with only a few streets to cross, you walk past the government buildings along the water. The light in the early evening is especially beautiful when the sun shines through the trees of the Tiergarten. In addition, there is no better goal than the Brandenburg Gate.
End: Brandenburger Tor
Length: 6 km
Jogging trail of the law
You don't have to follow this run in its entirety, but it serves to understand the run of a law in Berlin and as a run stimulus through Berlin's government district (approximately 22 km). If you want to cheat, you can also run this course in a shorter order - not like the law - then it's only 10 kilometres.
For more details you have to fetch a "Run This Way" map, which will be available at the Bundestagslauf and at the Firmenlauf in Berlin!!
Start: Bundesministerium für Gesundheit
Length: 10-22 km
