Oktoberfest 2009: Guide to Munich:Eisbach

The Eisbach flows through the English Garden, Munich's largest park. What is special about the stream is that you can surf on it. Right by the Haus der Kunst [Art House], a famous museum, there is a wave that is constantly being ridden by surfers from all over the world.

Tip: drive to the Eisbach, sit on the lawn and watch the surfers - that is a sheer Munich feeling - and afterwards go for a brief stroll through the English Garden!
