High Water Mark II at Maxau

Between 17:00 and 18:00 today the water level at Maxau (section Ludwigshafen – Wörth) rose to High Water Mark II. Consequently it is to be expected that this section of the Rhine will be closed to shipping.

Forecasts for the water levels on this section predict a probable closure up to and including 25.01.2018.

Water levels are also rising very fast in other parts of the Rhine basin. At Koblenz (Wallersheim) High Water Mark II is reached when the gauge stands at 650 cm. Forecasts predict that High Water Mark II, and thus closure of this section to shipping, will be reached here on Wednesday 24.01.2018.


As soon as we receive new information about the water levels, we will pass it on to you immediately.

Due to the High Water situation, we can unfortunately not guarantee to keep to the arrival times originally announced.

We shall be glad to answer any questions you may have:
