Rhine–Main–Danube Canal is part of each river cruise itinerary between Amsterdam Holland and Budapest Hungary or grand voyages all the way to Bucharest Romania, and also the reverse route from Black Sea (Romania) to North Sea (Holland). Along the route there are a total of 16 locks managed from all 4 control centres (in Neuses, Kriegenbrunn, Hilpoltstein, and Dietfurt). Each station is manned with 1 worker (night shift) and 2 workers (day shift). In 2007 the locks' old relay technology was replaced with computers.
