The Berlin Marathon is one of the most popular fall road races. Starting and finishing near the Brandenburg Gate, the marathon also immerses you in history. Because of the division in the city during the Cold War, the marathon events prior to 1990 only took place in the West of Berlin. In 1990, for the first time, the race took place in both East and West which marked a unique point in History and also showed the unifying ability of running. Undoubtedly, you'll be immersing yourself in History but this marathon also takes you through the most iconic monuments and interesting neighbourhoods in the city!
