Shipwreck "De Hoop" in the Rhine
End of January 1895, seven vessels including the Elizabeth have suffered a delay because of the frozen Rhine. The ship was loaded with dynamite, a total of 150,000 kg. At the Elizabeth 20 boxes with 866 kg of dynamite sticks exploded.
16 persons were involved in this accident which killed 13 and wounded 3.
Today, only this part of the wreck of the "De Hoop" is visible at very low water. So you can still take a look at this disaster of 115 years ago.
