The Lichtenauer Wasserlauf in Germany's capital Berlin offers an 800m run for children, a 5k race (one lap) and a 10k race (two laps) .

The route is a very scenic loop through the Regierungsviertel (government quarter).

Participants run along both banks of River Spree, passing many impressive sights, for instance the Reichstag building, the Hauptbahnhof (Central Station) and the Bundeskanzleramt (German Chancellery, pictured above) — the world's largest government headquarters building.
