The beautiful and idyllic major river Rhine, with its banks where Bonn is located, may also be malicious. Most of the residents do not only know romantic stories to tell about the river, but also something about its threatening characteristics: They tell about the high water marks of the years 1993 and 1995, both exceeding the 10 metre water level of Bonn. Those hours are dramatic ones for all residents concerned. The disaster attracts lots of onlookers, who constrain the assistant work.
