    SHIP HUB NIEDFINOW
    This building is a technical monument and represents a special tourist attraction. Every year, more than 250,000 visitors come and visit this unusual construction, which proves its functionality every day.
    The ship lift overcomes a difference in altitude of 36 m in the course of the Oder-Havel Canal.

    The old hoist still does it after almost 85 years, is indispensable as a landmark and keeps old and young amazed.

    Construction of the new elevator according to plan: 2008-2013 and still not finished. Sounds like BER 😜Nevertheless, both the old and the new lift are impressive and interesting structures.

    Fortunately, the old ship lift keeps forever because the new seemingly never finished

    Even after many visits, my respect for the builders and their simple beauty is still the same. Great views of the bypass and the new elevator.

    Really very worthwhile. Also feasible for people with fear of heights. The ascent is via a footpath that leads to the plateau in serpentine fashion. Tickets are available from the machine at the visitor center and cost 3 or 2 € pp.

    The old ship lift in Niederfinow is a technical feat. After all, it is the largest ship lift in Germany.

    After a successful trial run, which is probably already running, the new ship lift (probably 🤭) should go into operation in 2021. Both ship lifts are then to be in parallel operation for 5 years until the old ship lift is shut down. However, dismantling is not planned. It should remain as a landmark and a memorial. However, you will probably not get that close and freely visible to the technology at the new ship lift. If you can, you should see the old boat lift in operation while it is still in operation.
    Even if the Scharnebeck Lüneburg boat lift is 2 m higher at 38 m, the old Niederfinow boat lift is by far the most impressive. 👍

    Unfortunately, the newly built elevator is not yet finished (Pentecost 2020). Trial operation is currently starting!
