Berlin Sightrunning

 

What is Sightrunning?

Sightrunning, Sightjogging, City Running Tours – there are several terms for one of the latest trends in cities all over the world. The name is self-explanatory; Sightrunning is a combination of running and sightseeing. Which means, it is an alternative and environmentally friendly tourist offer.

Sports meet culture. With this unique way of exploring Berlin in “jogging mode” you will find out a lot of stories about Berlin´s highlights and turbulent history. As both a historical guide (Certified Tourist Guide) and a passionate runner, I would like to join you on a run. I will provide you with all the interesting information regarding Berlin as well as all the tales Berlin has to offer.

Who can participate?

Sightrunning is for anyone. You can join us no matter whether you are

  • beginner or advanced runner,
  • male or female,
  • by yourself or in a group,
  • a tourist or on a business trip.

How does it work?

Our flexible sightrunning tours are individually designed for you. Date, time, duration and tour will be arranged according to your needs. Therefore, a Berlin Sightrunning Tour will perfectly fit into your schedule, whether you are visiting the city as a tourist or for business matters.

Individuals or small groups

You set the pace and we’ll continue running while I’m explaining the sights. However it’s up to you to decide where to stop for taking photos.

Prices

from € 20,- per person

Larger groups - team events

Sightrunning is – unlike other running sports – ideal for team events. The focus here is not the competition, but jogging together while talking to each other. Since the size of a larger group makes it impossible to continue running while explaining the sights, we stop the places of interest. To prevent cooling down, I offer running exercises during these information breaks.
