The Rhin is a 1,233-kilometre (766 mi) long river in Brandenburg, Germany, right tributary to the river Havel. It flows through the city Neuruppin and several lakes. A few kilometres downstream from Rhinow it flows into the Havel, about 20 kilometres (12 mi) upstream from where the Havel meets the Elbe.
