    Just a nice place with a small lock, an old barge and a houseboat.Unfortunately, the lock at Bardowick is in poor condition and was closed in 2012. When or if the lock is repaired, is still in the stars. It is, as always, also a matter of money. Since today the vegetables are transported by trucks, Ilmenau no longer has any significance as a transport route. The lock has fallen into a deep sleep and is waiting for a prince who kisses her awake. This is how the museum ship, with which the vegetables were once transported to Hamburg, is caught there.But somehow it has remained a magical place.Left:[id]=94

    The Ilmenau as a waterway was of great importance for the Bardowick trading center. Merchant ships could sail this far.
    When the first lock was opened cannot be determined. It is first mentioned in 1386. In 1434, the mayor of Lüneburg, Lange, had it expanded.
    Today's lock a little further south near Eichhof was built between 1932 and 1934.

    The lock is located directly on the very good bike path towards Lüneburg and is therefore easy to reach. If you cycle from Bardowick to Lüneburg, you will automatically pass this lock.
