By  Wednesday, 4.11.2015, 12:32    Day Trips In and Around Munich

Looking to keep in shape while exploring the sites of Munich? Help is at hand...

For those people looking to take in some of the sights of the city, while jogging through its majestic parks the team from Run Munich offer a great workout, with tours varying in length to suit individual needs. 

There are three standard runs, of 6, 10 and 21km, all of which are centred in and around the Englischer Garten, surely one of the finest running spots in Europe. Here is what is included in the 6km:

"Short doesn’t have to be brief. This 6k tour will take you past all of Munich’s highlights and give you a wonderfully comprehensive overview of the city’s best bits. We will run through the Viktualienmarkt, Marienplatz, the Residenz and the Hofbräuhaus before heading to the English Garden and waving to the surfers on the Eisbachwelle. Our route home is along the Isar which just happens to be one of Munich’s finest running tracks.
This tour is for anyone wanting to see the best bits of Munich within a limited time frame."

Prices and times for these tours are as follows:

6km - 1 hour, 19€

10km - 2 hours, 29€

21km - 2.5, 39€

The start and finish point are the same - the Deutsches Museum.

The tours are available daily at 08:00 and 16:00 (09:00 and 14:00 from November to Feb.

Looking for something a little more personalised, starting at a location more convenient to you, such as your hotel reception? Taking in a different part of Munich, or a special theme? Personalised 'Munich for You' tours are available for 49€ per hour, with 10€ for each additional runner in the group, allowing you to choose both your running partners and route. 

Run Munich also has a range of corporate offer, for companies looking for teambuilding exercises. A nice healthy option and excellent way to exlore this fabulous city.

After 12 years living on the most gorgeous island in the world, Hvar in Dalmatia, I have begun to wonder if there is still life beyond its shores. Prior to discovering Paradise in 2002, I was a world traveller, living and working in Japan, Georgia, Somalia, Rwanda, Russia... and Munich.

After 95 countries and some 25 years have passed, the memories of my year in the hotel industry in the Bavarian capital (fired by the Sheraton for losing our pet snake, the first male chambermaid at Hotel Arabella, and a truly eye-watering introduction to five-star living in  my days as a bellboy in luxury Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten) are strong, and the call of Munich has been a constant theme over the last quarter century. 

And so here I am, answering the call some 25 years later. Twelve years of island living have changed me for sure, but also left me curious about life in a big city, and whether or not I could adapt to it after such an insular decade. 

I was surprised to see that for such a magnificent multi-cultural city, English-language blogs and regularly updated information are not that available. Static tourism information, such as that provided by the excellent tourist board website yes, but accounts of daily life delivered daily? Hard to find.

And so I have decided to take a break from my idyllic island and see if I could live in a city again. And what better way to try than to discover modern Munich in all its facets after so many years. It is a journey of discovery which I am relishing, and I hope the site proves to be of interest for Munich residents and its numerous visitors.
