Over seven world records have been broken along this infamous loop, which is what makes it that much more excitement-filled.More than just a marathon, the whole city comes alive with more than 70 bands and a festival that pulls from the neighboring countries just for a glimpse of the action. The highlight of the festival is when runners make their way around Brandenburg Gate directly past the grandstand on their last 400 meters as the crowd cheers them on.Although an excellent course for beginner through advanced, the BMW Berlin Marathon’s flat nature makes it ideal for those looking to get their feet wet. An excellent way to see the city, even seasoned marathoners will be awed by the spectacular nature of this grand historical race.
