The Isar Rapids
The River Isar rapids in Lenggries

Not far from the river bridge at Lenggries, the Isar drops a couple of meters forming a set of fast flowing rapids. Depending on the released flow upstream from the Sylvensteinspeicher, the Isar rapids used throughout the summer months by canoe or rubber raft boat tours. At present the flow is strong and clear from the warm weather melt water. Watching the rapids is hypnotizing as the light reflects from the wet stone surfaces, in the distance the Brauneck mountain provides the backdrop.
