    Dattelner seaThe port of Datteln is the meeting point of the Wesel-Datteln-Kanal and the Dortmund-Ems-Kanal. Here's where it goes: the waterways expand into a vast expanse of water - the "Dattelner Meer", a popular leisure center.
    Here, barges were hauled
    At times of the drag monopoly on the West German waterways from 1914 to 1967, the non-motorized barges were connected to the state tugs to be hauled to the ports of the sewer network. At the former lifting point of the towing operation, the boatmen were able to solve the necessary tickets. Today, the Dattelner Meer is home to the remote control center, a base of the water police and several companies for marine equipment.metropoleruhr.de/freizeit-sport/ausflugsziele/kreis-recklinghausen/datteln/dattelner-meer.html
