This article lists rivers which are (at least partially) located in Germany. Rivers that flow into the sea are sorted geographically, along the coast. Rivers that flow into other rivers are sorted by the proximity of their points of confluence to the sea (the lower in the list, the more upstream). Some rivers (the Meuse, for example) do not flow through Germany themselves, but they are mentioned for having German tributaries. They appear in italics. For clarity, only rivers that are longer than 50 kilometres (31 mi) (or have longer tributaries) are included. An alphabetical list of all German rivers that have an article in Wikipedia appears at the end of the article.
