Interesting video of River Elbe traffic

Lots of old timers and river traffic. One can appreciate the beauty of these well maintained classics. Amazing that they don't have a few incidents! Enjoy

Thanks Al.
Must have been some special day, ya think?
I liked the clam shell dredge near the end, it was self propelled.

Don't think this is the Elbe river. It's more likely the river Rhine at it's final part in the Netherlands before it flows into the North Sea. But anyway, this is really fun and fun to look at! Greetings from Berlin, Jan

Never seen so many FD boats before in my life.

Never heard so many horns either. Mark will LOVE this.

Now I want to go there.

In the beginning they were sure piling those plates high w food.

I kept waiting for the storm.

LOVE this video Al. Thanks

Lol...I laughed at the guy picking the shrimp out of the salad.
Trains, fire engines and steam driven anything still moves the excitement meter.

Some friends of our family were going on a river cruise of the Elbe and from what they said that due to low water levels, that part was cancelled...

I personally would like to see this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magdeburg_Water_Bridge

which bridges over the River Elbe and connects canals from one side to the other.
