My dear readers,
maybe the association of the words “surf” and “München” is a little unexpected.
As a tourist in München you have to see this place. Is called Eisbachwelle and is located at the south entrance of Englisher Garten close to a museum called Haus der Kunst.
Let me explain you the name.
(das) Eis = ice
(der) Bach = stream
(die) Welle = wave
As you can notice, a german “word” explains everything. The stream with waves is cold as ice. 🙂
In summer a lot of people gather on the bridge to look at the surfers.
It happened once in February that I was passing by at 8 o´clock in the morning on a working day and there was already a surfer having fun… or suffering in the cold (however you want to put it). For me was cold enough to look at him equipped with winter jacket, scarf and all the heavy clothes I use in winter.
