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 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 2013, approximately 550 runners took part in the event. Felix Hentschel (31:08) and Susanne Lutz (36:24) both set new course records in the 10k race.
