Eisbach is a small man-made rivulet in the city that is a popular site for surfing. The river flows through the English Garden. Near the Haus der Kunst art museum, it forms a large enough wave for surfing. The river is quite turbulent, making swimming here dangerous, though sometimes a few people can be seen in the water. While only experienced surfers are allowed to surf here, it is a fun pastime to watch them at it, balancing their boards and cutting through the waves.

The famous canopy roof which spans the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Swimming Pool and the Olympiahalle were a topic of debate in their day. The complex is, however, timelessly beautiful and has become an integral part of the modern cityscape.
