💘🇩🇪💘 Vaihingen an der Enz. Ein unbekanntes Städtchen mit vielen Fachhauser und ein richtiges Schloss. Leider ist in der Stadt nicht viel los, aber hat es vielleicht dadurch seinen klassischen Charakter behalten
#Sunrise at the ‚river‘ #Emscher .
The Emscher is a river, a tributary of the Rhine, that flows through the Ruhr area in North Rhine-Westphalia in western Germany. Its overall length is 83 kilometres . At the centre of a vast industrial area with 5 million inhabitants the river is biologically dead, as it was used as an open waste-water canal from the end of the 19th century. The partial collapse of many coal mines along the Emscher's route made the option of subterranean sewer pipes running alongside unworkable, as they would break too easily. Owing to the steady flow of spoil from the mining industry it has been impossible for the route of the Emscher to be maintained and its mouth into the Rhine has shifted north twice. A large wastewater treatment plant at its mouth treats the water of the Emscher before it flows into the Rhine.
