Surfing on the Eisbach-München

The Eisbach (German for “ice brook”) is a small man-made river in Munich. It flows through the park Englischer Garten and is a tributary of the Isar River. A manmade wave has been created on one section.

a bridge near the Haus der Kunst art museum, the river forms a standing wave about 1 metre high, which is a popular river surfing spot. The water is cold and shallow (sometimes only 40 cm deep), making it suitable only for experienced surfers.
