Visited this place in Dec. Didn’t expect people would surf in this freezing water. Amazing and unique, indeed.

So we spent 15 minutes watching people surf this little wave. It’s right near the start of the park so easy to find and right near the street. Good fun for 15 minutes and it’s free.

A short walk or taxi ride depending on where you are staying in the city centre of Munich. Great park and spot to watch the surfers - we’re told year round there are people surfing!

It was a unique thing to watch as I've never seen an urban surfing until I went there. Definitely something to check out when you are in Munich.

You can find this manmade river at the Englischer Garten, it is a side arm of the Isar River. Surfing is allowed in this section of the park so is very entertaining to see!

I would of never known there was surfing in Munich if I never went to the entrance of the English Gardens. What a great experience, spent 30 minutes watching them go.
