Do you know there’s a city where you can surf on a river?

Amazing Right?

Munich, Germany, is a long way from the ocean and it can get rather cold in winter, but that doesn’t stop some hearty surfers from catching a wave.

The Eisbachwelle is a year-round river surfing spot at the edge of the city’s English Garden. Water shoots out from under a street and creates a perpetual wave as the stream runs into the park.

It’s not the sea and sand you expect from beach movies. The water ranges from cold to frigid, so surfers are usually covered in full wetsuits and may have to walk through snow to get to the river.

On the plus side, there’s no paddling around waiting for the perfect wave; you just wait your turn and drop in.
The bridge is a great place to watch the action, so the Eisbachwelle is also popular with photographers and spectators.
