Runners will pass the Heiligen-Geist-Hospital, built Anno Domini 1286.


Held in the old Hanseatic merchant city of Lübeck in northern Germany, the Citylauf attracts a crowd of over 1000 runners.

The event offers an 11.3km race, a 5.2km run, and children's races.

Participants in the 11.3k race run two and a half laps of an undulating course through and around Lübeck's Old Town — a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Most of the route is on asphalt but some sections are on cobbles or on gravel paths.

The 5.2k consists of three shorter loops.

In 2011, the top finishers in the main race were Claudius Michalak (36:12) and Anke Tiedemann (42:12).
