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.
