Sea-ing is believing

Munich may be a long way from the sea, but you will be forgiven for thinking that the city has suddenly sprouted a harbor if you visit the Olympic Park on June 14 and 15. At the nautical event München und Meer (Munich and the Sea) the Olympic lake will be decked out with its own boardwalk at which a variety of ships and boats, including a historic two-mast schooner, will be at anchor. Anyone who dares can join the pirates at Coubertinplatz above the lake for a program of stunts and fireworks at the pirate camp or walk down to the Theatron-Bühne to watch live performances of sailors and shanty choirs.
