Tips

  • Jörg

    A tour along the Alte Fahrt can only be recommended, a really beautiful piece of nature that is simply worth preserving.

    Nice route under old trees. Lock very interesting when a ship enters.

    Well-preserved barrage, you can see the mechanics very well.
    Unfortunately the water in this part of the "old trip" almost degenerates into a sewer.

    The historic barrier on the old drive is worth experiencing the history of technology on the canal. The rough mechanics of the large sprockets and their chain drive are worth seeing. The door is moved using the hand cranks installed on the side on a large wheel, which is connected to a gearbox.

    Construction work is currently underway there, a new bridge and road are being built. 🙄

    You rarely see such a lock. A great panoramic view.

    The landscape on the canal is always impressive and beautiful at any time of the year. The Datteln canal junction is unique in Europe because several canals meet

    Not quite as beautiful as it used to be, since the bridge of the new surrounding road is now there. Let's see how it will be when the bypass is in operation ...

    The old ride, a beautiful bike path with old trees, is definitely worth driving.

    This barrage separated the old canal from the new canal.

    A very nice cycle path along the old ride (old canal) through Olfen. It's really worth driving the way.
