Road closures for the half marathon in Berlin

Berliner Halbmarathon 2023 (2)

From Friday, drivers in Berlin will have to be prepared for some restrictions.

According to the traffic information centre (VIZ), the first closures in Tiergarten will be put in place on Friday for the half marathon on Sunday.

Numerous closures from Friday

From six o'clock, Straße des 17. Juni will be closed in both directions between Yitzhak-Rabin-Straße and Behrenstraße. From around 6pm, Straße des 17. Juni will then be closed in both directions from Großer Stern. There will also be closures for the half marathon on Ebertstraße, John-Foster-Dulles-Allee, Yitzhak-Rabin-Straße, Scheidemannstraße at the corner of Dorotheenstraße, Heinrich-von-Gagern-Straße, Annemarie-Renger-Straße and Paul-Löbe-Allee. They are all expected to be dismantled by early Monday morning.

Closure of the running route on Sunday

On Sunday, Unter den Linden will be completely closed between Brandenburger Tor and Friedrichstraße from 7am. The closure of the entire route will begin at 8am, 75 minutes before the first start. The road sections will be gradually reopened after the last runners and after the course has been cleaned.

Public transport and the city motorway as an alternative

The VIZ recommends using public transport during the half marathon wherever possible. Drivers should use the A100 city motorway as an alternative. The running route can be crossed via the Tiergarten tunnel and the tunnel at Adenauerplatz. Road users must be prepared for longer journey times on the A100 motorway.
