River and shipping

Camping along the river Waal is a unique event for both young and old. This river is one of the busiest rivers in Europe. Especially to supply the Ruhr area with raw materials more than 850 million tons of cargo are transported along this river every year. On a normal day more than a hundred inland navigation vessels, tankers and pushers tug combinations pass by. This is another reason why you will not feel bored on camping-site De Grote Altena.
