River IJssel, sometimes called Gelderse IJssel (Gelderland IJssel) to avoid confusion with its Holland counterpart, is a 120 km long branch of the Rhine in the Dutch provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel. It flows north from the city of Arnhem until it discharges into the IJsselmeer ("Lake IJssel", until the 1932 completion of the Afsluitdijk known as the Zuiderzee). It is one of the three major distributary branches into which the Rhine divides itself shortly after crossing the German-Dutch border, the other two being the Nether Rhine and Waal rivers. The name IJssel is thought to derive from the Germanic i sala, meaning "dark water". Download high resolution version (634x768, 162 KB)False colour satellite image of the IJssel basin. ...
