"Watching the Surfing in English Park" Englischer Garten Tip by TooTallFinn24

Englischer Garten, Munich: 17 reviews and 18 photos


While Munich is several hundred miles from the nearest ocean it doesn't seem to bother some of the younger folks in English Park.

Situated in the southern end of English Park, the artificial river the Eisbach creates a wave that is approximately one meter high. Young men and women gather on the rocks and try to ride the wave as it moves through the park. The site is actually more dangerous than it looks with submerged rocks and a narrow distance to make sharp turns. However it is great fun to take a few minutes at the top of the bridge and watch the local kids try to hang ten on the Eisbach.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
