The traffic on the Rhine can be very heavy at times with with sometime two coupled together. These can be as long as 180 meters long. (over 500 ft) this is not long as compared to the traffic on the Mississippi but considering the much narrower Rhine with fast current it is quite a length.
Here we met a cruise boat, most likely coming from the Danube.
You see some vineyards in the back ground.
The vineyards on this part of the Rhine are nothing compared to what we saw on the Moselle last year.
