The Isar River in Munich

For Munich inhabitants, the Isar River in Munich is more than just a pretty sight. The river, whose waters flow from the Alpine region of Tirol in Austria, has long served as a major city attraction.A number of popular pursuits take place on its waters or along its banks.
 
Fishing in the River Isar is quite popular and overnight fishing packages are offered by outfitters in the area. Expect to catch graylings and other similar fish. 

Other fun activities include river rafting, but not the type that most people picture when they think about such an activity. This is not whitewater rafting, but rather merely floating down the gentle river on a wooden raft. These old-fashioned leisurely float trips take several hours and usually include a band, plenty of German food, and a bit of rambunctious behavior. (For example, you might want to bring a water gun so you can squirt passers-by on the bridges above the river!)

Sunbathing is also a common warm weather occurrence on the banks of the Isar River. But beware... nude sunbathing is allowed in certain areas and if you're not accustomed to this tradition, you may be in for an embarrassing moment or two.

Along some stretches of the river, you'll also find ideal spots for picnicking, and in designated areas, you can bring a barbecue grill and set it up near the water. In the summer, it can get pretty crowded on particularly pleasant days in the city.
