Tip 1: One district, 11 districts, 21 routes - small but nice running routes
Every district of Reinickendorf can be circumnavigated once - so there are routes of all lengths and for every type of endurance. From 1.3 kilometres around the Steinbergsee or 2.8 kilometres through the Tegeler Fließ to almost 40 kilometres through the Tegeler Forst. In between, the Reinickendorf running park offers all lengths and you also have the opportunity to discover cultural places and sights.
Tip 2: Running along the little river in Berlin - The Pankeweg
Much more physical fitness is required on the Pankeweg. The trail starts at Chausseestraße and goes all the way to Schönhausen Palace Park. On the way, you run along the river. If you want to go further, you can follow the route to Buch. Enjoy your run through Berlin!
Tip 3: Wide views - Running on Tempelhofer Feld
This classic had to be mentioned because it is simply suitable for everyone who enjoys running in Berlin: Beginners and experienced. The runway of the former Tempelhof Airport is many hundreds of metres long and straight ahead on an absolutely flat surface. Plenty of space and freedom to let your gaze and thoughts wander to the horizon. Your running route might even pass an old airplane.
Tip 4: Running Route in Treptow - Always along the water
Around the Stralau Peninsula and on to Treptower Park, houseboats are anchored and on sunny days there are many people on the green meadow. If you start at Ostkreuz, you follow the riverbank path for almost ten kilometres. On the way back, you will pass through the Plänterwald forest and the former amusement park.
Tip 5: Running and Sightseeing - Three Lakes Circuit
Here you not only run around the three lakes Orankesee, Obersee and Fauler See, but you also get a bit of sightseeing and pure nature on the way. You'll pass the Mies van der Rohe bungalow and a wonderful nature reserve where you can see rare plants and bird species while jogging. If you're still motivated after the 7 kilometres or so, head straight for the next lake: The White Lake offers another 5 kilometres. This is also a wonderful route.
Tip 6: Make some altitude metres in Friedrichshain park
If you don't just want to run, but work on your strength and fitness, you can go to Volkspark Friedrichshain: up and down the Bunkerberg a few times and then over the Trimm-Dich trail. Sore muscles are pre-programmed! Afterwards you deserve a visit to the beergarden in the park or try one of the cute little cafés in the area.
Tip 7: A round around the Kienbergpark
You can also strengthen your stamina in Kienbergpark. Around the mountain and then simply choose the route to the top - this way you can clear your head and enjoy a beautiful view over Berlin. Kienberg park is close to the Gardens of the world. A beautiful place to visit in the springtime.
Tip 8: Running route through Berlin's centre
Berlin's largest park - the Tiergarten - is the starting point for a jogging tour through the centre. Along the way are numerous sights, such as Bellevue Palace, the House of World Cultures or the Ribbon of the Federation. Through the park itself, many paths branch off into very individual routes.
Tip 9: Enchanted running trails in Rehberge park
You can jog through the Volkspark Rehberge in a particularly undisturbed way. An enchanted landscape of forests, meadows, hills and lakes awaits you here. On a total distance of 25 kilometres, there is a suitable route for every level. You will find the challenge directly at the open-air museum, where the path climbs slightly.
Tip 10: Royal jogging - Running at the park of Schloss Charlottenburg
Against the backdrop of Charlottenburg Palace, it is a wonderful place to walk - even if you would like to stop here and there and stroll a bit with the other visitors. The almost four-kilometre-long paths through the palace park lead past the mausoleum, the rococo pavilion or the tea house. A truly royal running route!
Tip 11: The long distance running route: around Müggelsee lake
Finally, a round for all those who have been actively jogging for a while: A loop around Müggelsee. Depending on your level of fitness, you'll need between two and a half and four hours for the 25 kilometres. You'll love the route: on the one hand, the view of the lake and on the other, the running route itself leads almost entirely through woodland and parkland.
