This was so… weird, cool, strange, amazing, that I thought it deserves its own post. (Well that AND I got a few photos that I can show off separately now, otherwise they’d be crammed in with the others in the main post :p).
Where? What? How?
OK so I noticed (just now ) that Wikipedia actually mentiones this quite extensively. So, this is it:
There’s this stream going through the Garten, the Eisbach, and where it is pumped into the park there’s a standing wave. And people surf, and canoe, on that.
Got me some spectacular photos, good practice for action shooting :-). (see below fold)
…although you could argue that it is the swimming that is not allowed. Not sure German cops have that sense of humour though.
