You can even go running in the middle of the city. Locals and visitors alike make good use of the running trails in Paradies Park all year round. There are also many challenging runs and races at higher altitude and in varied terrain in the Kernberge hills.
In Jena, sport is an important facet of city life. As well as all the activities that take place at local level throughout the year, there is plenty of support for the city’s football team FC Carl Zeiss Jena and basketball team Science City Jena.
