The region of Lower Rhine also experiences an influx of water sports enthusiasts every year at the world’s largest water sports fair. Hundreds of thousands of visitors and hundreds of exhibitors come to the water sports fair “boot Düsseldorf” every year to see and present innovations in the field of water sports.

In order to steer a boat yourself, you need a boat driver’s license, which can also be obtained on special courses on the Lower Rhine. According to the law, a driver’s license is required to steer a sports boat with an output of 5 HP (3.69 kW) or more on inland waterways (Rhine). The relevant traffic regulations for pleasure boat traffic on the Rhine are the Rhine Shipping Police Ordinance & the Inland Shipping Road Order. (Source: Water Police NRW)

There are also speed controls on the Rhine and other rivers or lakes.
