When the sun's out in the summer, Munich has a real holiday feel. As well as going to the open-air swimming pools, locals like to gather on the banks of the River Isar to perfect their tan. The Flaucher, close to the zoo, is the most popular spot, and on a sunny weekend, all hell breaks loose. After all, if you have been working on your tan all day, you need fortifying in the evening. On warm summer nights, the Flaucher is full of locals enjoying a barbecue and a couple of drinks. The best way to get here is via Thalkirchner Bridge; it then takes about ten minutes on foot. This is the native's beach substitute and in the summer, you'll always find people perfecting their tan here. Spend a warm evening having a barbecue here with your friends. The Flauchersteg leads to a lovely path that will get you to the Thalkirchner Bridge in about 10 minutes.
