The Berne

The Berne is a river at which the City of Essen was originally founded. Due to mining the source in the centre of the city has long since run dry. Shortly before its estuary in the Emscher, the Berne is fed under the Rhein-Herne Canal in a sewage pipe. Today, the small river is a sewer and has almost been forgotten.
