    One of seven locks on the Rhine-Herne Canal. Until 1967, the then non-self-propelled barges were decoupled from the canal tug and pulled by a tow locomotive through the lock chamber. The locks were needed to overcome the height differences of the canal. The lock process is always fascinating.

    This lock is located in Herne-Crange on the Rhine-Herne Canal. Not far from the lock, the Cranger Kirmis takes place once a year.

    Unfortunately one minute too late, otherwise the ship would still be in the lock

    The lock Herne-Ost belongs - from the Rhine - to the last of the five canal stages of the Rhine-Herne Canal in Herne. The twin lock is at canal kilometer 37.26. Herne-Ost was put into operation in 1914 as the easternmost of the original seven canal stages of the Rhine-Herne Canal.Source:

    A great view of the canal. You can also get relatively close to the lock.
