Havel

The Havel ( ) is a river in north-eastern Germany, flowing through the German states of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg, Berlin and Saxony-Anhalt. It is a right tributary of the Elbe river and 325 km (202 miles) in length. However the direct distance from its source to its mouth is only 69 km (43 miles)

For much of its length, the Havel is navigable, and it provides an important link in the waterway connections between the east and west of Germany, and beyond.

Famous quotes containing the word havel:

    The deeper the experience of an absence of meaning—in other words, of absurdity—the more energetically meaning is sought.
    —Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    The law is only one of several imperfect and more or less external ways of defending what is better in life against what is worse. By itself, the law can never create anything better.... Establishing respect for the law does not automatically ensure a better life for that, after all, is a job for people and not for laws and institutions.
    —Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    Without free, self-respecting, and autonomous citizens there can be no free and independent nations. Without internal peace, that is, peace among citizens and between the citizens and the state, there can be no guarantee of external peace.
    —Václav Havel (b. 1936)
