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!
