Hannover, Germany

Georgengarten and Herrenhauser Garten

One of the best running options in Hannover is just outside the grounds of the Leibniz Universität Hannover in the north of the city. The sizable Georgengarten landscape park has a number of paths, but one of the highlights is the tree-lined Herrenhäuser Allee. It reaches 2.5 km from Bremer Damm to the Hannover Schaumbergstraub U Stop. After running down the Allee, runners can tour around the Herrenhauser Garten, the Leibniz Tempel, and the ponds before returning to the start of the 7 km loop. For more distance, runners can add on a quick 1.5 km jaunt around Welfengarten, just to the east of Herrenhauser Allee, across Neinburger Str. 

Add-Ons: Botanical Garden (Berggarten), just north. Or, the Leine River/Canal paths just south.
