rivers in Europe - a map

Recommended Posts

This map of European rivers in their use as waterways I liked so much I wanted to share it :

 

https://www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/main/sc3/European_inland_waterways_-_2012.pdf

 

You can zoom in and get more details, like locks. There is an explanation on the bottom right of the map. Europe is criss-crossed by canals that you can sail on barges (i.e. barge holidays) that are offered by companies, often self-drive. For a more pampered experience CroisiEurope offers such trips on peniches (French - refurbished - barges).

 

It also shows smaller rivers that you can sail with CroisiEurope and some German lesser-known companies for example. The Saar in Germany springs to mind. And yes, one could sail further upstream from Paris on the Seine...

Thinking this map might be interesting for current and prospective cruisers, I have bumped this thread.
