Minden is a Weser River cruise port and town in Germany's North Rhine-Westphalia state (Minden-Lubbecke district), with population around 83,000. The town is best-known as the intersection of Mittellandkanal (Mittelland Canal) and Weser River. Mittelland Canal (length 326 km / 202 ml) is a major manmade inland waterway (running east-west through central Germany) also connecting the country with France, Switzerland, Benelux Union (Belgium-Holland-Luxembourg), Czech Republic, Poland, and up to Baltic Sea.
