Excerpt from the documentary series “The Rhine From Above”. Click here to watch all episodes: http://bit.ly/RhineFromAbove
How far the Lower Rhine wandered before it was straightend by dams can be seen in the city of Utrecht. When the Rhine finally settled in its current bed the inhabitants channelled the river’s former course which flows through the city today as “Oude Gracht”. Here cafes and bars are supplied in a traditional way: by beer boat.
