Surfing in Munich, Germany

When I was in Munich, Germany this past October, I heard about a place on the Isar River where you could surf outdoors any time of the year. “Long ago an urban designer placed three rows of rocks in the streambed to create some aesthetic roil,” wrote Scott Ostler for the San Francisco Chronicle, “and, voila, Surf City.”

The bridge overlooking the wave is on Prinzregentenstrasse at the south end of Englischer Garten. Here’s a map.
