In any other city in Germany, this sight would be entirely unusual – but not in Munich! Here, a surfer in the metro is a part of the cityscape. The reason for this is the surfing wave at the Eisbachbrücke, which attracts surfers from around the world both day and night and in both winter and summer.
The “standing” wave not only challenges the sense of balance of the surfers but is also a real tourist attraction. In good weather, crowds of onlookers gather on the bridge under which a torrent of water flows. In spring, a visit to the Eisbach is always a good idea if you want to enjoy the warm days…
We also encourage you to visit “Arts ‘n’ Boards”. Located in the middle of Schwabing, it is Munich’s first surf bar with restaurant and scene hangout. Sip on a refreshing aperitif or let us spoil you with our culinary delights. Whatever you decide, there is definitely something for every surf enthusiast.

In addition, the Eisbachbrücke is an ideal starting point for a leisurely stroll through the English Garden. You can “arm” yourself with your picnic basket and take a small break in the warm spring sun. In this unique atmosphere, your small snack will taste even better. Guaranteed!
If you prefer to forgo the picnic, you can enjoy tasty cuisine in the lake house on Kleinhesseloher See, which is also located in the English Garden. To round off your excursion to the “green lung of Munich”, we recommend a leisurely boat ride on this idyllic lake. Use the boat rental service and become your own captain!
The team from the Platzl Hotel hope you enjoy your “conquest of the seas”!
