Bike Touring Highlight
Mittelland Canal trough bridge
On the old trough bridge leads a foot and bike path along. From this offers an impressive view over the Leineaue.
The Leineradweg to Garbsen passes under the old and the new trough at the location of the watermark and gives an impression of the different, fascinating constructions of the two bridges. In particular, here the steel masses can be perceived, which carry the burden of the canal water and the ships.
In Seelze the Mittellandkanal and the leash cross. At this point, two extraordinary bridges span the river. They are so-called trough bridges, which allow ships to cross large rivers, such as the line.

Only a few people know that there is a waterway cross in the Hannover region. About the line flowing through the place Seelze leash leads in a bridge of the Mittellandkanal. The right part of the bridge, the so-called "Old Ride" was built in 1917. It is interesting that you can go straight under the Mittelland Canal. If you stand under the imposing structure and hold your hand to the trough with thousands of cubic liters of water above you, that's a very impressive feeling.
