While checking the Internet for extreme river conditions in Germany, I stumbled upon this great source of vintage pictures: the Historical Archive of German Waterways. Unfortunately there is no english version, you can try google translate instead. I was not sure about the copyrights, they had a 3 pages long form to fill out, so I just present links to some cool pictures and events documented:
