Although very nice to run, the second route is not for the faint at heart when it’s getting dark. It leads directly across Munich’s mystical Alter Südfriedhof cemetery with its majestic tombs and ornate headstones. However, it’s not scary at all by day and a great spot to go for a run or a walk or to enjoy some silent contemplation.

This second route starts directly in front of the carathotel as well. Once again, you must turn left, but immediately take “Augsburger Straße” this time to enter the picturesque “Glockenbachviertel” district. From there, you’ll have to take “Thalkirchener Straße” to get to the old cemetery. Cross the cemetery until reaching the other side, but don’t forget to look to your left and right while you’re running - you might spot a few famous names from Munich’s and Bavaria’s history on the moss-covered, slightly askew tombstones. Leave the cemetery through the southern gate and turn left towards one of Munich’s most popular running tracks: the banks of the river Isar. Cross the river at “Wittelsbacher Brücke” bridge and turn right to run through the park.

Depending on your stamina, ambition and time, you can continue running for as long as you like. The route along the banks of the river Isar offers some spectacular views, a great atmosphere and ideal conditions for a long run. If you want to return to the hotel immediately, cross the river once again and take the same way back.
