Spring flood of the Rhine

Previous Index Next

Every year in spring, when the snow in the southern parts of germany smelts, there is a flood along the river Rhine, and the meadows near the river bank are set under water. The pictures shows an "average inundation" in the year 2001. Regularly every some years some streets and cellars are set under water too. This is rather annoying for the concerned people, because the water leaves a delicate coating of mud, which is difficult to remove, on the walls and floors and all things.

On the picture the Rhine can be seen in the background as white stripe. In the foreground there is a flooded meadow with a fenced path, and some branches of a weeping willow hanging down into the picture.
