To soak up the essence of Berlin in a swift snapshot, strap on your running shoes and hit the ground. Watch out for the trams and the glaring Ampelman, and Berlin may reveal itself in charming and unexpected ways. The body will get the chance to refresh and test itself against all the late-night partying and glutinous dining it will likely endure.

Whether you choose to run through the scenic Tiergarten, along the broad River Spree, or through the sobering towerblocks of East Berlin, you are sure to see some facets of the city which remain surreptitiously hidden on the traditional sight-seeing tours and nightclub hotspots. While you might not be Usain Bolt smashing the 100m world record, or the great Jesse Owens winning gold 1936, any self motivated individual who wants to test their mettle and keep themselves fit will find that Berlin can offer it all. Here are some possible locations for aspirant Berlin-joggers to give a try:

Volkspark
A run to Friedrichshain and the Volkspark, park of the people, takes you along bleak accommodation, through undulating parklands with statues sprinkled far and wide. You’ll pass many other joggers and dog-walkers as you push yourself through each and every cobbled incline. To finish, the vast Olympic velodrome of Landsberger Allee is nearby.

Tiergarten
A renowned tourist destination, for exhibitionists the Tiergarten is sure to draw the eyes of at least a few distracted passers by. With beautiful scenery and a vast landscape, the Tiergarten can be visited time again and still reveal new secrets. It is possible to make a reasonable detour through the Brandenburg Gate or other city-centre icons and leave yourself in a reflective, albeit puffed out, mood.

Treptower Park
With parkland and viewpoints scattered along the banks of the Spree, a run along here can brighten a day. Interesting and enjoyable, you can stop to observe the grand Russian monument. Very popular with other runners.

Schlosspark
Along the River Spree in parts, this area in Charlottenburg is flat and fairly undemanding, but beautiful and inspirational. For those living in or close to the west, this is a safe and reliable bet, with some splendid views.

Berlin seen through the eyes of runners is a kostenlos view of the city. Money can stay safely in the accommodation as the mind is left to wander through the winding streets. Bring sturdy shoes as you will undoubtedly find yourself running for extended periods on Berlin’s numerous pavements.

Tipps on coffee places after running:
Coffeemamas, Kirchstraße 2 – Berlin, Tiergarten
Artistic, unique, comfortable and tasty.

They are equipped with everything from espresso to freshly baked goods at reasonable prices, and have ice cream. Inside, there is plenty of seating with a variety of chairs. Mounted on the walls are photographs, art, and coffee bean dispensers adding to unique style. Artistic mood when you walk in, pleasing to sight, taste and touch.

Kaffee Mitte – Weinmeisterstr. 9a – 10178 Berlin, Mitte
Modern. Original. Chill.
Tucked away on a side-street providing privacy from nearby tourist attraction Alexander Platz is Kaffe Mitte. Modernized evironment with a lot of space to move, atleast in the day. Doubling as a bar, this Italian-style cafe is a place to get coffee bean derivitives, other beverages, and Italian food. Reasonably priced offering a calm atmosphere to sit back, strange music, and friendly staff. It’s a nice detour. Cement walls line most of the cafe also; it’s a relaxed place to take a break in the day and get a jump-start. Kaffee Mitte is conveniantly located outside the Weinmeisterstraße U-Bahnhof and is open Monday-Friday 7:30pm – 10:00pm and on Saturday and Sunday 10:00am – 10:00pm.
