Set in the Altstadt (Old Town) of the Hanseatic merchant city of Lübeck in northern Germany, the City-Lauf is an event for the whole family.

It offers races for all ages, starting one after the other:

  • 1.3km kids' run
  • 600m kids' run
  • 1.3km unicycling
  • 5km run, walking, nordic walking
  • 10km run

The 10k race is two laps of an undulating course through Lübeck's historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The route visits many of Lübeck's best sights, such as the Salzspeicher (salt warehouses; pictured above) and the Heiligen-Geist-Hospital (Hospital of the Holy Spirit; pictured below).

The finish line is at the Rathaus, one of the largest medieval town halls in Germany.
