Englischer Garden Park & Eisbach Surfing Wave

Munich’s most famous park gets its glory for good reason. Sprawling fields, a babbling creek, wildflowers & a giant Chinese Pagoda/Biergarten–what’s not to love? The locals certainly do as it was packed on a Thursday. Who doesn’t love a beer in the sun?
And you can’t not stop by to admire the athletic talents of the surfers at the Eisbach. Yes, surfers in the middle of a park, in the middle of a city, in the middle of a landlocked country in Europe. The Eisbach is a man-made surfing wave from a fast flowing river. The wave is narrow so the surfers must be talented, and not to mention, they have quite an audience watching them there every day so only the most confident try it out.
