People strolling though the English Garden in the center of Munich might be in for a spectacular surprise. Against any expectation suddenly there are people surfing a brook, the “Eisbach”.

Surfers jump into the waves and ride them for a while until they lose balance or strength – then the next surfer takes their place. Surfers ride this spot all year round – even in summer it is quite cold – so you can imagine how it is if there is snow and ice around 😉

As it is quite dangerous to ride on a standing wave this is recommended for very experienced servers only!
