At the lock Woltersdorf it is possible to rent a raft and to float in the surrounding waters. For a long time, the lock served as a means of transporting the limestone and lime mined in Rüdersdorf by water. Even today, some companies still use this route to transport their goods. The lock has been extended over the centuries more and more, in order to meet all the crowded shipping traffic, including the recreational area. It is about 65 meters long and 8.5 meters wide. A floodgate takes about 16 minutes.

An interesting historical building and if you are lucky, you can see the folded lane. The first dam was erected here already in 1559.

Nice change at the start of a hike. If you are lucky, the drawbridge is just up and lets the boats of the recreational captains enter the lock.
This certainly adds to the entertainment when inexperienced people dare the maneuver, because most of them do not have a driver's license for their craft.

Anyone who has come by tram (line 87 tariff C) can make the way back via Erkner. Always along the water. First the beach promenade, then the beach and campground along to Erkner. There over the Löcknitz bridge to the main street and the S-Bahn station Erkner. The S-Bahn goes every 20 minutes to Spandau (5,25,45) and in between (15,35,55) only to Ostbahnhof.

Woltersdorf Lock worth a visit in every season. Many small restaurants and cafés in the immediate vicinity invite you to linger. Also very interesting is the many hiking opportunities along the Kalksee or Flaakensee from Woltersdorf, just look at the map. 👍
