With the water having long receded, the Rhine promenade between Remagen and Kripp is usable again.

On the other side of the river, gravel was being loaded onto a barge. A traditional local industry, still alive.

Behind it is the town of Ockenfels, marked by Castle Ockenfels.

The old crane stands as a reminder of Linz's historical export of basalt.
The stately building nearby is to this day owned by the Basalt-Actien-Gesellschaft, or Basalt Stock Company, founded in 1888.

Cormorants always perch on these things, ever photogenic.

The city of Linz on the other side.

The equestrian facility's grounds, a few weeks ago a veritable lake, are also in use again.
