Despite being a small distributary of the Isar River, the Eisbach features a very fast stream, making surfing a reality in an inland city. The Eisbach wave is a stationary, human-made wave located just 50 yards away from the Haus der Kunst modern and contemporary art museum in front of a nearby bridge. The standing wave breaks in cold, 15-inch (40 centimeters) deep and 40-foot (12 meters) wide waters. The surfing conditions at Eisbach vary depending on the weather and the time of the year, but it could produce a solid three-to-four-foot wave. The best time of the year to ride Germany's quintessential river wave is from March to November when water levels are not too high and not too low. The average water temperatures range from 50 °F (10 °C) during summer to 62 °F (17 °C) during the winter season. Eisbach means 'icy creek' or 'ice brook' in English. Although the Eisbach River wave rarely freezes due to its strong currents, it can easily reach extremely low temperatures of around 34 °F (1.1 °C).
