Bernkastel - Mosel River Flood Marks

Flood marks on the former railroad station in Bernkastel. The system of locks on the Mosel River was opened in 1964. From the frequency of floods since then, it appears that navigation was the only aim of the locks, not flood control.

 

The highest mark is 1993 (not 1893).
