München (Munich) Marathon


The legendary route of the Munich Marathon starts at the Olympiapark constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics, when the marathon was held for the first time, and leads runners near some of the most important landmarks of this Bavarian capital. The home of the Generali München Marathon is famous not only because of the Oktoberfest. It has a rich architectural heritage centred around Marienplatz, with sights like St. Peter’s Church dating back to the 12th century or a gothic revival Neues Rathaus.
Make sure you sign up for the Generali München Marathon and experience what this beautiful city has to offer.


The home of the Munich Marathon is breathtaking. Centuries-old buildings, numerous churches, museums, the English Garden and the lovely Isar, the river that runs through the centre of Munich. The Bavarian capital is known for the annual Oktoberfest, it's very friendly people and it’s sportiness. Even if Munich is packed with beautiful old buildings, like the neo-Gothic New Town Hall at Marienplatz, Munich has a lot of modern architecture and young, pulsating lifestyle to offer.

With that being said, the GMM is ready for you and we can’t wait to welcome you to Munich!

Whoever has competed in one of the editions of München Marathon knows and loves those iconic goosebump moments when running by Munich’s greatest sightseeing spots. The concentration and tension of the runners is tangible. Only subsiding when the starter’s pistol finally sounds and your run through Munich starts.

Get ready and be part of the GENERALI MÜNCHEN MARATHON!
