[8-28-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: What major river runs through the Netherlands?

The given options are:

  • The Seine
  • The Rhine
  • The Elbe

Correct Answer: The Rhine

Info: One of Europe’s leading transport routes, the Rhine has long played a vital role in the continent’s history, culture, and commercial development. From its headways in the Swiss Alps, it flows north and west before eventually reaching the Netherlands, where it drains into the North Sea. It forms part of the Swiss-Liechtenstein, Swiss-Austrian, and Swiss-German borders. It is the second-longest river in Central and Western Europe (after the Danube), at about 1,230 km (760 mi). The various castles and defenses built along it attest to its prominence as a waterway in the Holy Roman Empire. The largest and most important cities on the Rhine are Cologne, Rotterdam, Düsseldorf, Duisburg, Strasbourg, Nijmegen, and Basel. (Ref)
