These are the main rivers of the Netherlands.

All of the Netherlands is drained into the North Sea, partly via the IJsselmeer lake. In the list below, rivers that flow into the sea are sorted following the North Sea coast (including IJsselmeer) from the Belgian border near Knokke to the German border near Emden. Rivers that flow into other rivers are sorted by the proximity of their points of confluence to the sea.

A large part of the Netherlands is located in the Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt delta. The network of rivers is rather complex. The main routes of the rivers Scheldt, Meuse and Rhine are indicated in bold.

At the end of this article the rivers of the Netherlands are given alphabetically. See also Category:Rivers of the Netherlands and Category:Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta.

Note for additions: please remember to add the city where the river meets for each river.
