Rhine Water Levels Rise

Northern sections of the river had been particularly affected by the low water levels, especially the parts running through Germany. Thankfully, before the rivers got too low they were gifted with plenty of rainfall flowing down from the hills and bringing them back to their usual depths. The Rhine has been a major waterway through Europe for millennia, and the rich opportunities for trade along it means that the banks of the river are dotted with ancient castles and towns that have long and winding histories to tell. There are always periods when it is lower or higher, something people became used to centuries ago. If you want to discover all of this for yourself, why not book one of our fantastic Rhine river cruises and delve into the river’s fascinating history? Image Credit: Mike Knell (flickr.com)
