the Rhône rises in Switzerland at Rhoneglet and flows into France in the proximitythe cities Arles and Marseille under formation of a Deltas in the Mediterranean. The actual German name of the Rhône, gangs, is only in the waiter whale-reads used, usually in the form Rottu (see. Radio Rottu. The grammatical sexthe river is male in latin (“Rhodanus”), French (“le Rhône”) and in Walserdeut (“the gangs”), which for rivers rather atypical is.
The Rhône rises from that Rhôneglet in the northeast of the canton Whale-read in Switzerland and flows at first from east to west. In Martigny the Rhône makes a salient 90°-Bogen ( the Rhône knee) and flows for direction the north. It flows into Bouveret into the Geneva lake, which it leaves in Geneva again.Subsequently, it flows that law along to the south to Culoz, where it breaks through the law to the west. Starting from Lyon it flows from north after south and finally flows in close proximity to Marseille into the Mediterranean. Between the two Mündungsarmenif the Camargue lies, admits by their white horses, black cattle as well as the sump and water birds (above all flamingos, herons and Ibisse).
In the climatically favoured Rhônetal many fruit places are cultivated, so e.g. Peaches, cherries, Apricots and strawberries. The valley of the Rhône is famous also for its vineyards, (e.g. in whale-read, at the slopes of the Geneva lake, south of Lyon and with Châteauneuf you Pape).
Rhônekorrekturen in whale-read
Afterthe inundations of 2000 in the year 2001 with the planning of the third Rhônekorrektur one began. The goal is to be increased security and to be arranged at the same time the river course again more natural.
larger cities to the Rhône
- Sion(dt. Customs), the capital whale-read
- Châteauneuf you Pape (red wine city)
- Avignon, the city of the Popes with its famous bridges
- Arles, with its Roman settlement
The Saône brought, if she flows into Lyon into the Rhône, already a longer distance than these behind itself. If one counts the length Rhône Saône, increases therefore the maximum length of the river system of 812 to 860 km, the ensembleRhône Saône Doubs is even 1025 km long.
