Urban Surfing in Munich:

Urban Surfing in Munich

Every day right in the middle of  Munich, Germany you can find surfers hitting the waves – just venture into the city’s Englischer Garten. The Eisbach river, home to the world’s best known river surf spot, has a huge stationary wave where surfers jump in taking turns on the wave.  Up to 100 surfers a day hop in the river where the water temperature typically runs about 15 degree celsius (59 degree Farenheit!). It is quite a show to see.  Our kids had learned to surf in Australia but this wave was above any of our  ability.  But it was so much fun to watch!
