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.
