I see many posts on this site looking for information on the rivers of Eurpoe, particularly water level related prolems om the rivers and what to expect. I'm sure that people also do searches on this forum to help fin this information. The primary pupose of this post is to provide keywords to help finfd yhis post and the rivercruiseinfo web site. It is by far rhe best site that I have found on European river information.
The author of this web site rivercruiseinfo is named Ingo Eigen. He is a tour guide in Nuremburg, in the heart of the European river system. He works for Grand Circle Cruise Line among other river cruise companies. If you ever have him, thank him for his work on this site, and maybe even give him an extra tip. The site is a wealth of information of ships and cruise lines, the river system conditions, news articles links to other sites and mobile apps. I had considered trying to do this several years ago, but the amount of work needed to collect and maintaing this information instaggering. As he works in the middle of this environment, hes is a far better position to do this.
