River Wave, MUNICH, GERMANY

Munich Eisbach River Surfing
GENERAL
Right in metropolitan Munich, there are some waves on a tributary of the River Isar (Eisbach, meaning Ice-River, and, yes, it is really really cold !) than can be ridden. The two most popular spots are:
  • HAUS DER KUNST
    the pro-spot
    At this spot the river Isar flows out of a tunnel under the city. But you must be careful, as the rock is only about 40cm below the surface. Very hip place right in the center of Munich. Locals might be unfriendly.
  • FLOSSLÄNDE
    the beginner spot
    this spot in Thalkirchen is a little further up the river and not as dangerous. A much more relaxed, laid-back attitude. There is a big lawn next to it where you can sunbath, barbecue and chill. Usually only breaks from end of April-September with flat periods in July.

    SPOT RATING:
    HAUS DER KUNST 3*** (for the uniqueness of the spot)
    FLOSSLÄNDE 2**

    CROWDS
    can get crowded on weekend, but you can only surf one at a time, so it is just about queueing.
    Not so good surfers might get into trouble at Haus der Kunst.
