Course highlights
The Vienna City Marathon leads to the most impressive modern and historical sights of Vienna. You start on Wagramer Straße in modern Vienna, close to the "UNO-City", the seat of the United Nations, and finishes in the city centre in front of the Burgtheater. Immediately after the start, the participants cross the river Danube on the 864-meter Reichsbrücke bridge towards the city center. You pass the huge Ferris wheel and run on the completely flat "Prater Hauptallee" (main avenue) through the large, green park area of the Prater. This is exactly where Eliud Kipchoge ran in 1:59:40.2 hours for the marathon distance on 12 October 2019. He became the first person to run a marathon under two hours. A quarter of the VCM course is on Kipchoge's 1:59 course. The race continues along the Danube Canal to the Vienna Ringstrasse, past the Vienna State Opera, the arts center Secession and the Naschmarkt, through the Wiental Valley to Schönbrunn Palace, Austria's most visited tourist attraction. Still before the half marathon distance, you run through Vienna's most famous shopping street, Mariahilfer Straße. You see many of the most impressive museums, the Parliament, the University of Vienna and the "Votivkirche" while running along one of the most impressive cultural marathon routes in the world. The magnificent Ringstraße boulevard is your home stretch. You will reach the finish line directly in front of the Burgtheater with a view of the City Hall. The finishing line in front of the Burgtheater is also the heart of all running events on Saturday.
