A three-day specialist study tour on “Innovations in  Design of Public Spaces and  Construction and Operation of Water Systems in Parks and Green Areas” took place at the beginning of August in the Bavarian capital Munich for a delegation from the Ministry of Urban Development of the Moscow Region, led by Minister Mikhail Khaikin. As part of the itenerary the delegation visited several parks and new development areas in Munich and exchanged experiences with their German colleagues: landscape architects and managers of urban construction and green spaces. During the meeting in the famous Munich English Garden, his manager, Tomas Köster, introduced the history of the garden to visitors from the Moscow area, reported in detail on current issues of administration and operation, and showed them important cultural objects and leisure facilities in the English Garden. One of the garden’s newest hotspots attracted particular interest among visitors, namely the Eisbach wave, the most popular place in Münchener Surfer am Eisbach, the left-hand guide to the Isar. For some years, the “Eisbach wave” has become so famous around the world that it is considered an international landmark of the English Garden that in 2019 celebrates 230 years since its foundation.
