Why locals love it

Munich is the river surfing capital of the world, because it's the birthplace of this unusual sport. And while the city and its inhabitants are not world-famous for being trendy and hip, this place certainly is.

Why you should visit it

When you meet men in wet suits, walking around barefoot and carrying surf bords, then you are very close to one of the coolest places in Munich. Where else would you find people surfing right in the middle of a city park?

Special tip

Nevermind the weather, people surf all year long.

Easy walk from city center, stroll along the canal, dotted with nudists, and wind up at the Chinese Tower beer garden.

Watching the surfers at Eisbach it is a kind of motivational exercise. Every time when I go there for seeing them I go back home inspired and eager to explore and try new things. Even surfing one day.

It's amazing to see the locals surfing on the Isor River running through the middle of Munich. It is so unexpected.
