Oberhalb des Weisse-Flotte-Anlegers und am Rheinkilometer 744,2 befindet sich die historische Pegeluhr. Sie wurde 1996 restauriert. An ihr lassen sich neben der Uhrzeit auch der momentane Wasserstand des Rheins ablesen. Der kleine Zeiger zeigt dabei die Meter, der große die Zentimeter an.

Above the "Weisse Flotte" pier at Rhine kilometer 774.2, there's a historic river gauge. It has been refurbished in 1996. You can read the current time from it as well as the current water-level of the river Rhine. The small hand of the clock indicates the meters, the large one the centimeters. In addition, several historic high-waters are marked. The normal level of the Rhine at this location is 24.48 meters above sea level.

The river gauge is a local tourism attraction of the city of Düsseldorf and a popular photo motive and meeting point. In the inside, modern technology controls the gauge, which allows for online retrieval as well as for radio and telephone announcements.
