A stone step at the exit point at the Prinzregentenstraße of the very water-rich and fast-flowing Eisbach produces a rapids and a standing wave of about half a meter height, which is used by canoeists and river surfers and surfers internationally, since attaching an extension to one of the two shores all year round got known. She is both popular and feared by wave surfers, because right behind her several rows of stone blocks underwater can cause injury, especially to inexperienced surfers.

The wave in the Eisbach in the English Garden is the (only?) Best wave in Munich, which is suitable for surfing. However, it is not completely safe and it was already considered whether to ban the surfing due to the many accidents in the Eisbach.
In addition, this is one of the filming locations of the police series "Munich 7" which is already in the seventh season.

The "Eisbach wave" is now well known far beyond the city limits of Munich. From all over the world come the "surfers" here. If you've had enough, many hikes through the surrounding area, such as the English Garden, or a visit to the Haus der Kunst, or the Hofgarten.

Here the experts surf. Does not seem to me completely safe. But so fascinating that you as a spectator should certainly plan for half an hour's stay. Very cool is the view from the bridge down, because there you can watch the tricks (and splash) very well. Incidentally, there is a second, smaller wave in the English Garden in which also surfed. Just continue along the Eisbach ....

Throughout the year you will find many surfers and even more spectators here at the Munich Eisbach. The possibility of surfing is caused by the steep gradient that generally has all the waters of Munich - including the Eisbach. And through a concrete enclosure, which (inadvertently) creates a constant wave.
Although surfing was forbidden here in the past and is tolerated today, it seems that one is currently considering "adding" an extra wave. Wherever. We will see...

From the Prinzregentenstraße you can often see a crowd of enthusiastic spectators. They stand at the parapet of the small bridge directly at the Haus der Kunst or cuddle on the banks of the Eisbach between the trees of the English Garden. She has lured a popular Munich attraction, the Eisbachwelle. It is the best known of the Munich "standing waves". This is where the surfing scene meets - throughout the year. Was still until a few years ago, the ride on the Eisbach wave illegal, he is now legally allowed due to the exchange of land between the City of Munich and the State of Bavaria
