The flood hazard and flood risk maps show the extent of the hazard and the risk due to floods from surface waters and floods from the sea with low, medium and high probability.

The central access to these maps for the international Elbe river basin district has been made possible by way of an interactive map application.

This application shows the potential flood plains in the entire Elbe river basin district. It can be used for selecting specific areas and for being redirected to detailed national maps.
