The Bauma in Munich is the largest fair in the world with an area of 555.000 m². It takes place every third year and has a large open air ground. The official tower of the Munich fair can be seen in the panorama on the left with the blue sign near the top. It is 86m high. Many of the cranes are even taller! The original panorama was stitched from 15×3 portrait images that gives a final resolution of 14768×6000 pixels. The Konica Minolta Dynax 7D has a resolution of only 6 Megapixel.
Surfing is a popular water sport you would not expect in Munich, hundreds of kilometers away from the next coast line. The location is at the Eisbach, which translates to ice brook just next to the Haus der Kunst in Munich. The standing wave can be surfed the whole year, but even in summer the water is very cold.
The history of surfing the Eisbach goes back into the year 1972 (according to Wikipedia).
The Eisbach flows under ground for some kilometers and is a part of the Isar river. After the popular surf spot it flows through the Englischer Garten a large park where you can relax just in the heart of the city.
