The Berlin Marathon is one of the largest and most important marathons of the world. It has a unique atmosphere and the level of the course is perfectly suitable for records; so in 2014 Dennis Kimetto won the world record with the incredible time of 2:02:57. Furthermore, this course is also cultural. The runners will start at the Tiergarten, main garten of the city, for an adventure which will make them visit the most important venues of the city center, just like the Reichstag, Berliner Dom, Fernsehturm, not to forget the Brandenbourg door and Potsdamer Square ; whether it be the old east side or it be it the new west part of the city. You’ll be shown the difference of urbanisation and you’ll be able to discoer the city in an funny way. The unfoegettable arrival will be on ‘Strasse des 17 Juni”, once again inside the Tiergarten, surrounded by an excited crowd.
