Riversurfing-Eisbach-Munich-Germany

How many times can you say you surfed in a river? Let alone in the middle of the city?  With this man made Eisbach River, you now can.   It is located in the city that flows through English Garden and connects to the Isar River.  River surfing has become the new popular activity in Munich as a hobby, tourist attraction, and for those who want to learn.  The main wave for experienced surfers is a meter high that doesn’t cease, meaning you can ride for as long as you want. The easier waves are downstream for the beginnings or for those who are new to surfing.  If you rather just watch the surfers do their thing then go on ahead!  It’s very common to do so, for instance tour buses even stop here so people can watch.

The English Garden

The English Garden - Munich

Enjoy the sunlight, greenery, and views of the city in the The English Garden.  The garden runs from the city center to the northeastern parts of Munich which covers roughly 1.4 square miles, (3.6 square kilometers).  With that being said, this makes it one of the largest urban parks in the world.  You can also enjoy many leisure activities in or around the The Isar River which runs through the garden.  You can raft, swim, sunbath or surf, as mentioned above with the Eisbach River Wave.  There is even has a massive beer garden, a 78 kilometer- long (48.5 miles) network of paths, and fields where amateur soccer players recreational games.  There is also a Japanese Tea House, located on the southern part of the park that holds Japanese tea ceremonies regularly.  All in all, you could spend a whole day here with how much there is to see and the amount of relaxation this park offers. 

Olympic Park

Munich's Olympic Stadium

Anyone can walk through and enjoy the presence of an Olympic Stadium, but how many can say they climbed  or zip lined across it?  The stadium was built in 1972 and is located in the Olympic Park Munich complex.  The zip line is called the flying fox and the only way to get there is by climbing the stadium to get to the platform. Once you make it, you will be able to ride the 200 meter long 40 meter high zip line.  If you rather just climb the stadium then they offer that option as well.  The tour guide will take you and a small group on a 120 minute climbing adventure.  You will have the chance to see fantastic views of the the Munich skyline, the Bavarian Alps, as well as learning about the architecture and construction of the stadium.  For some more sightseeing, explore the rest of the park which includes a lake, a hall, swimming pool, and the Olympic Tower which has a  viewing platform 190 meters high.  If you want outdoor activities, then definitely try this.

Ride a Beer Bike

Munich Beer Bike
