    Tension is building up! On Sunday, September 16, SCC EVENTS will send more than 44.000 runners on the fastest marathon course of the world. We describe four neighborhood tracks near the original course of the BMW BERLIN MARATHON. Whether idyllic along the river Spree from Charlottenburg castle to the government District or through the Volkspark Wilmersdorf in the southern part of the marathon course. Here you can run the last miles to get in the mood for the big race or you have an easy jog to get rid of your sore muscles on the day after. Have fun on your run.


  • COURSE A - River Spree (West)

    (Tiergarten, Charlottenburg)

    Bundeskanzleramt (Federal Chancellery) / Tipi-Tent

    Bundeskanzleramt, Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Schwangere Auster / Pregnant Oyster), Schloss Bellevue (Bellevue Castle), Schloss Charlottenburg (Charlottenburg Castle)

    The varied 6 km long course along the Spree goes westward to one of the most scenic recreation areas of Berlin. In this unique idyll with most impressing views at the Charlottenburg castle, the near river and many little niches you can run an extra 3 km lap. After that you return to your starting point running back on the embankment of the Spree. The end of your City West Tour is in the start-finish area of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON where you can have a cool drink and get in the right mood for the big day.


  • COURSE B - Heart of Berlin

    Platz des 18. März opposite Brandenburg Gate

    Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Victory Column, Zoological Garden

    Tiergarten is Berlins biggest park. That’s why it never gets too packed even in the summer season. You find an interesting mix of jogging tourists and locals, soccer and Frisbee players or people enjoying a walk. After working out you can relax and have a drink in the “Café am Neuen See” or in the English Garden. Small stretches of the 5- or 7km lap lead through the start/finish area of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. If there are closures already you find back to the course shown on the map after a short detour.


  • COURSE C - River Spree (East)

    (Tiergarten, Mitte, Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain)

    Bundeskanzleramt / Tipi-Tent

    Bundeskanzleramt, Haus der Kulturen der Welt („Pregnant Oyster“), Bellevue Castle, Reichstag, Berliner Dom, Museumsinsel.

    The 10km lap through the Government district and the City East offers a fantastic program for all runners with a special touristic interest. The ramble through the history of Berlin starts in modern times  at the Bundeskanzleramt (Federal Chancellery) and leads a long way back into the past at the Fischer- and the Museumsinsel and the Berliner Dom (Berlin Cathedral). The scenery is quite lively n the summer. Strollers, business people and runners share the embankment with the highest density of boat jetties in Berlin. After your run you can have a cool drink in the beergarden of the “Pregnant Oyster” watching boats and ducks.


  • COURSE D - Volkspark Wilmersdorf

    (Wilmersdorf, Schöneberg)

    Rathaus Schöneberg (Platz am Goldenen Hirsch)

    Rathaus Schöneberg, Goldener Hirsch, Goldfischteich

    Die 8-km-Runde durch den Volkspark Wilmersdorf verbindet die Marathonstrecke zwischen km 23 und 31. Sie ist leicht hügelig, im Sommer gibt es gibt viel zu Gucken. Am Goldfischteich direkt am U-Bahnhof Rathaus Schöneberg geht ein Reiher auf die Jagd, auf dem Platz am Goldenen Hirschen wird passioniert Boule gespielt. Der schmale und langgezogene Park führt durch dicht besiedeltes Wohngebiet und ist für seine hohe Joggerdichte bekannt. Rund um den Fennsee wird es etwas ruhiger und beschaulicher. Über die Autobahnbrücke mit Blick auf den Funkturm geht es zu einer kleinen Runde um das Leichtathletik- und das Eis-Stadion Wilmersdorf.
