We start at the historic Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church and head west! Running or jogging 10k at the guests pace, we run down the grand boulevard Kurferstendamm talking about the artistic characters who lived here through the hedonistic 1920's and how the Nazi regime impacted on their lives. We then discover quaint little districts of West Berlin like Meyerinckplatz and Leonhardtstrasse and their history not found in travel guides! A little further on we arrive at Lietzensee park and its beautiful lake with unparalleled view of the Funkturm(West Berlins version of the Fernsehturm!). Coming out of the city we reach Grunewald forest, my training ground! Being the Berlin Grunewald marathon winner and record holder, I can show you hidden gems including some of the marathon course, a giant sand pit and a secluded lake with nudist beach(wetting your feet is optional!!). Finally we will pass a former US spy station which is now an art installation and arrive at the highest point in Berlin for unbelievable panoramic views of the whole city and forest. We finish with a well earned break at a typical German imbiss cafe at the forests edge. Then we take the train back to the city.
My name is Stephen and I am a certified Go Running Tours guide. Running is indeed my passion and I'm a proud member of SCB Berlin running club and the Berlin Social Runners. Having moved to West Berlin 3 years ago, I set out to discover every nook and cranny of this beautiful yet overlooked part of the city through running and jogging. From the affluent West city center to picturesque local neighborhoods and wild forests, there is so much to see. On the edge of West Berlin is the vast Grunewald forest. As the winner and course record holder of the Grunewald marathon, I am more than qualified to guide you around this beautiful wild part of Berlin, its secret sights and amazing views! With my love for history particularly that of West Berlin before and during World War 2, my tour combines the perfect amount of city, history and nature
