Today I will be visiting the line between Germany and the Netherlands. First I thought to visit the Hollandstrecke aka Oberhausen–Arnhem railway, but due to railworks, I had to change plans and instead see the Viersen-Venlo line.
As the line between Germany and the Netherlands is an important freight link, many trains are today diverted on the Viersen-Venlo line
The Aare is a tributary of the High Rhine and the longest river that both rises and ends entirely within Switzerland. Its total length from its source to its junction with the Rhine comprises about 295 km, almost entirely within Switzerland. There are more than 40 hydroelectric plants along the course of the Aare.
