Isar

The Isar is a river in Bavaria, Germany. It is a tributary of the Danube and 283 km in length. The name Isar appears to be derived from the Celtic word "Isaria" (meaning "torrential").

The source is located on the German-Austrian border in the Bavarian Alps. From there the river runs northwards, directly through the Bavarian capital Munich and northeastward to Deggendorf[?], where it finally meets the Danube.

Cities on the river's banks include: Bad Tölz[?], Wolfratshausen[?], Munich, Freising[?], Moosburg[?], Landshut[?], Dingolfing[?], Landau[?] and Plattling[?].
