About Munich

The name München (‘home of the monks’) stems from an early monastery founded in the eighth century. The city was founded by Duke Henry the Lion in 1158, and soon became the seat of the Wittelsbach dynasty, who ruled the duchy, electorate and kingdom of Bavaria until the end of WWI. Despite considerable wartime damage, the city has been impressively restored and is now one of the nation’s most popular tourist destination. Germany has a population of approximately 81,471,834 (July 2011) of which 1.37 million people live in Munich.

Rowing in Germany

Exported from Great Britain, rowing came to Germany in the early 1800s. The first German rowing club was founded in Hamburg in 1836 following an initiative of British rowers living there. Over the next half century, a large number of rowing clubs were founded all over the country culminating with the birth of the German Rowing Association (DRV - Deutscher Ruderverband) in March 1883, including 34 rowing clubs and 1166 members at the time. Today, the German Rowing Association (DRV) has the largest membership within the world rowing federation, FISA, and is one of the most successful rowing countries in the world.
