Volksbank Münster Marathon

From a sporting event to a cross-city event. The Volksbank Münster Marathon, held annually in September, has become a real highlight in the Westphalian city. With over 300 performers, 100,000 spectators and more than 8,000 runners, the Münster Marathon is one of the largest marathons in Germany. A varied supporting programme with bands, spectacular artists and cheerleader groups provides a unique atmosphere next to the course. Not only the visitors benefit from the exuberant atmosphere, the marathon runners also enjoy the cheering crowd. After all, they can only complete the 42.195 kilometres with active support!

Our tip for Münster

Marathon and much more!

You like castles and palaces, gardens and parks or simply love to feel the charm of historic buildings. Then why not combine the city festival at the Volksbank Münster Marathon with a visit to other sights or a little stroll through the beautiful alleys of Münster. You don't even have to take your eyes off the marathon action to do this. The Münster Marathon starts at the imposing Münster Castle, with the Botanical Gardens directly behind it. Or perhaps you like it a little quieter. The charming Haus Rüschhaus is located just outside Münster in the countryside in the direct vicinity of the running course. The perfect opportunity to cheer on the runners away from the hustle and bustle. And don't forget the breathtaking finish on Prinzipalmarkt directly in front of the Westphalian Peace Town Hall in the heart of Münster's historic old town.
