The Lune is a river in Germany, some 43 kilometres (27 mi) long and a right tributary of the Lower Weser. It is a small lowland river, which is joined initially by the Volkmarster Lune on the boundary between the borough of Bremervörde and the district of Cuxhaven. Between Kirchwistedt and Stemmermühlen is its confluence with the Altwistedter Lune, and it then flows through Beverstedt, Lunestedt, Nesse near Loxstedt and Lanhausen to Lunesiel south of the Fischereihafen district of Bremerhaven. Until the beginning of the 17th century the river was a major transport artery and navigable as far as Deelbrügge.
