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!
