    Somewhat hidden here is a view of the Roman Canal to see.

    The Romans in the Cologne area did not want to drink Rhine water. That's why they built a canal from Nettersheim, Eifel, to Cologne. In this then the spring water flowed 100 km far to be drunk.

    From Nettersheim the spring water flows 100 km through this channel to Cologne.
    The Romans who lived there did not want to drink Rhine water but to drink spring water from the Eifel.
