The Isar is a tributary to the Danube flowing in Tyrol, Austria and Bavaria, 295 km in length from the Karwendel range of the Alps down to Deggendorf.
On its way from the mountains to the Donau it passes along Garching (and of course through Munich) so it is what most qualifies as "our river".
These shots were taking sometime in summer 2011 in the area between Garching and Munich.
Typical sight of the Isar.
The name possibly stems from the Celtic words ys (fast, torrential) and ura (water, river).
ys may also mean "high" as well as "low"~
This is in the Englischer Garten.
