TEN Rhine – Danube
The Rhine – Danube Corridor connects Strasbourg and Mannheim, running along two parallel axes in Southern Germany – north along the Main and Danube and south via Stuttgart and Munich – and onwards through Austria, Slovakia and Hungary to the Romanian ports of Constanta and Galati, with a branch on its northern section to Prague, Zilina and the Ukrainian border.
In Germany, the rail corridor includes several branches, primarily along the Kehl – Karlsruhe – Mannheim – Frankfurt – Nuremberg – Schirnding/Furth i. Wald/Passau and Karlsruhe - Stuttgart – Munich – Freilassing routes.
The corridor comprises railways, roads, airports and ports, as well as the Main, Main – Danube Canal, the whole of the Danube downstream from Kelheim and the Sava River.
