List Of Rivers Of Germany

This is a list of rivers, which are at least partially located in Germany. Rivers that flow into the sea are sorted geographically, along the coast. Rivers that flow into other rivers are sorted by the proximity of their points of confluence to the sea (the lower in the list, the more upstream). Some rivers (e.g. Meuse) do not flow through Germany themselves, but they are mentioned for having German tributaries. They are given in italics. For clarity, only rivers that are longer than 50 km (or have longer tributaries) are shown. An alphabetical list of all German rivers that have an article in Wikipedia is given at the end.

The rivers of Germany flow into the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea and the North Sea. The most important rivers of Germany are:

  • flowing into the Baltic Sea: Oder
  • flowing into the Black Sea: Danube (and its main tributaries Inn, Isar, and Lech)
  • flowing into the North Sea: Rhine (and its main tributaries Moselle, Main and Neckar), Weser and Elbe (and its main tributaries Havel and Saale)

    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    If Germany is to become a colonising power, all I say is, “God speed her!” She becomes our ally and partner in the execution of the great purposes of Providence for the advantage of mankind.
    —W.E. (William Ewart)

    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    Poor shad! where is thy redress? When Nature gave thee instinct, gave she thee the heart to bear thy fate? Still wandering the sea in thy scaly armor to inquire humbly at the mouths of rivers if man has perchance left them free for thee to enter.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
