Bike Touring Highlight
This whole complex around the ship lifts and the Schleusenpark-Henrichenburg is an excursion destination in itself! There is so much to discover that a single day is almost not enough.
Here you should take your time and immerse yourself in the technology of today “New Lock”, yesterday's “Shaft Lock”, the day before yesterday's “Lift” and even older “Old Ship Lift”, discover and explore it.

This highlight is exactly the same in terms of position
Lock Park Waltrop / Land's End - headland in the upper water
The headland in the upper water lies exactly on the branch between the active waterway north and the former upper water of the old Schachtschleuse. The promontory is not only beautifully landscaped, it offers space and seating for a rest. From here you can watch the lock traffic.

Old Waltrop shaft lock, great bike path, a bit steep, but awesome.
