Minden (Minden an der Weser) is a Weser River cruise port and town in Germany's North Rhine-Westphalia state (Minden-Lubbecke district) with population around 85,000. The town is best-known as the intersection of Mittellandkanal (Mittelland Canal) and Weser River. Mittelland Canal (length 326 km / 202 mi) is a major manmade inland waterway (running east-west through central Germany) also connecting the country with France, Switzerland, Benelux Union (Belgium-Holland-Luxembourg), Czechia, Poland, and up to North Sea/Baltic Sea.

Mittellandkanal runs (east-west) directly through the town while Weser River runs south to north. Both waterways cross in town's northern area (at Wasserstrassenkreuz Minden / aqueduct).
