The Wiener Riesenrad in the Prater in Vienna, Austria (Copyright © 2014 Hendrik Böttger /


The Babenbergerlauf gives runners the opportunity to test their strength and stamina on one of the fastest road running courses that you can find in Europe.

The route is a pancake-flat, traffic-free and AIMS-certified 5km loop through the Prater, the largest public park in Vienna, and home to the famous Ferris wheel.

Starting and finishing on the Prater Hauptallee avenue (near the Ernst-Happel-Stadion, Austria's biggest stadium), participants run either one lap (5km), two laps (10km), three laps (15km), or four laps and a bit (21.1km half marathon).

Each lap includes one turning point on the Prater Hauptallee.

Around 250 runners took part in the Babenbergerlauf last year.
