Waal river, Netherlands

The main stream of the Rhine river flows almost due west across Holland as the Waal river. The flow is unhindered by weirs or locks, all the way to the sea. It is a busy highway for commercial barges and cruise ships. A parallel, northern branch is the Neder-Rijn, which flows into other branches which form the Rhine Delta in the Netherlands.

Thousands of photos taken on two trips down the Danube (first trip starting at Calais, France and the second trip from Vlissingen, Netherlands, both all the way to the Black Sea) have been used to create the EuroCanals PhotoNav Guides for the Danube. They include the photos shown on this website.
