Start your running route at the corner of Erhardtstraße and Corneliusbrücke, cross the bridge and turn left along the Isar river. Be careful as you cross a bike trail. Run along the river, keeping it on your left flank (Deutsches Museum) until you reach Luitpoldbrücke. Cross the bridge and turn left. Continue 500 metres passing the Maximilianbrücke bridge, then turn left to cross the Praterwehrbrücke bridge before making an immediate right turn. Continue straight along the path until you have the Deutsches Museum on your left side again. Make a turn right and cross the Boschbrücke bridge, and you’re back at your starting point. Finished!

This is the best. Accessible to the public this garden area offers everything needed for running: fresh air, good trails and historic surroundings.
Favourite running route for Munich citizens. Easy access and a beautiful run next along the river and old buildings.
A forest right in the city centre. Dog owners, sun bathers, joggers, surfers, walkers and cyclists share trails through English garden and enjoy fresh air.
During Oktoberfest time this area is filled with crowds wearing Lederhosen and Dirndl, who want to drink beer and have fun. The rest of the time it is a nice route to run.
