Cologne Marathon Route
Known as the 'experience marathon', the Cologne Marathon is full of interesting sites.

Runners start in the Cologne Deutz area, crossing westward over the Rhine. They almost immediately then face the twin towers of the massive Cologne Cathedral before striding along side of the Rhine, past the many Romanesque churches, passing through some of the attractive parks that surround the city. They then returning to the city centre, once again reaching the finish line at the impressive Cologne cathedral.
