The German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG)

Our continent is traversed by major rivers and canals and is surrounded by wide coastal waters. They form a system of waterways that crosses national boundaries and provides links between countries. These waterways are a valuable asset for all people living in Europe. Comprehensive and sustainable development of their manifold use options requires thinking and action beyond national frontiers.

As a scientific institution ranking as a supreme federal agency, the BfG is responsible for the German waterways in federal ownership. In this position it has a central mediating and integrating function.
