The Dintel is a river in North Brabant that runs from Oudenbosch to Standdaarbuiten.

It originates in Belgium as the Mark.


The Dintel is mentioned in the 13th century as the name Dindel or Dindele. After the St. Elizabeth's flood (1421) the Dintel was considered more of a sea than a river. After the surrounding land was further drained the Dintel became narrower. The Dintel, ended with locks in the early 19th century. Thus disappeared the tide of Dintel.
