Neckar

From Academic Kids

The Neckar is a river in Germany, a major tributary of the River Rhine, which it joins at Mannheim. Rising in the Black Forest, it flows through a steep valley in the Odenwald hills and passes through Tübingen, Nrtingen, Esslingen, Stuttgart, and Heidelberg. The total length of the Neckar from its source near Villingen-Schwenningen to the Rhine is 367 km. The Neckar is navigable for cargo ships up to the river port of Plochingen (about 200 km upstream from Mannheim).
