I boated out of Garmisch years ago.
Near Garmishch is the Loisach which is a little class 4 creek. There is a boating shop in town and lots of boaters
Augsberg near Munich hosts the orginal artificial kayak course and is pretty fun for play. Good place to meet boaters
The best boating is actually in Austria just over the border in the Inn river valley.
I did some river called the Oetztaller Ache (spelling could be off). Great river and the higher you go the harder it gets. Lots to do there.
Hope this helps some
Thanks for the information. I will actually be staying in Garmisch for 10 days with family. I will definitely visit the kayak shop to hook up with some locals. I'll also be staying 7 days in Munich and will look into the kayak course as well. I'm not sure if I'll make it to Austria this time but who knows ... Again, thanks much for the help - you've given me hope and direction!
