Burg zu Burghausen and River Salzach (Copyright © 2015 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


The Salzach Brückenlauf ("Salzach Bridge Run") takes place on a highly scenic course at the foot of the world's longest castle complex, the 1,051-metre-long Burg zu Burghausen in Germany's state of Bavaria.

The castle sits on a rocky ridge above the historic centre of Burghausen, a town of about 18,000 inhabitants on the River Salzach, which forms the border between Germany and Austria.

The event offers a 3.2km race, an 8.8km race, a 5.5km walk, and a 404m child-and-parent fun run.

The 8.8km race consists of two laps (3.2km+5.6km).

Starting and finishing on the colourful Stadtplatz, the 3.2km loop runs through Burghausen's Old Town, across the River Salzach into Austria, along the river, and across a second bridge back to Burghausen.

The 5.6km loop takes the runners on undulating gravel paths and trails through beautiful parkland and around a lovely bathing and rowing lake (pictured below).

Last year, more than 1,000 runners and walkers took part in the Brückenlauf.
