The Kaiserdomlauf in the Bavarian town of Bamberg — a gem of an old town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site — offers a 10k, a 5k, and a 2.5k children's run.

The start and the finish are approximately two kilometres north-west of Bamberg's Cathedral, the "Kaiserdom" (pictured), built on a hill above the beautiful Altstadt.

The races are held on a flat and fast, certified 2.5-kilometre loop course through the district of Gaustadt, which is home to the "Brauerei Kaiserdom", the largest of Bamberg's nine breweries.

In 2012, over 500 runners took part in the event. The fastest 10k finishers were Rashe Buggaa (32:00) and Susanne Lutz (37:11).
