The Rhine River is one of Europe’s most important rivers. It is a major transportation artery for goods that enter the harbor of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. It comes to no surprise then, that the Central Commission for Navigation on the Rhine was the first European organization that, already during the rule of Napoleon, regulated the international management of the Rhine. This was the first European economic cooperation that culminated in the birth of the European Union. The Rhine is internationally seen as an example of how a river should me managed and this is also the way we approach the river.
