Munich, Germany

Olympiapark Route

Also known as one of Munich’s most iconic running routes, is the impeccably maintained, asphalted, Olympiapark. Located in Schwabing, about 5 km from the city center, Olympiapark was created for the 1972 summer Olympic Games.

The beautiful park attracts both locals and visitors, and features a sea life aquarium, swimming pool, a small theme park, and lots of food carts. More specifically, there is a 5.2 mile paved route around the park, which will take you past the Olympiaturm, Olympia Eishalle, BMW museum, and BMW welt.

Olympiaturm: The olympic tower within Olympiapark. Has an overall height of 954 feet, and weighs 52,500 tons.
Olympia Eishalle: An indoor sporting arena used for various indoor events.
BMW Museum: An automobile museum of BMW history.
BMW Welt: A multi-use exhibition center, used for meetings and promotional events, and where buyers take delivery of BMW vehicles.

A nice add-on to this run is the ~3 mile route in Luitpoldpark, which starts from the same U-Bahn station, Petuelring, as the Olympiapark route.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
