Runners on the Prater Hauptallee in Vienna, Austria (Copyright © 2012

The Prater Hauptallee is popular with runners all year round.


The Babenbergerlauf in Vienna features a half marathon, a 14k and a 7k run.

Like many other running events organized by the athletic club LCC Wien, the races are held on a 7km loop course in the vast Prater park, the favoured training ground for Viennese runners.

The course is very flat and fast but each lap includes one turning point as a major part of the race is run out and back the Prater Hauptallee (pictured above), the main avenue through the park.

Starting and finishing near the Ernst-Happel-Stadion (Austria's largest football stadium), the route runs through park and woodland, alongside the ‘Liliputbahn’ (pictured below), and past the ‘Riesenrad’, Vienna's famous giant ferris wheel.
