Tips

    "The locks Flaesheim belong - from the Rhine - to the fourth of the six channel stages of the Wesel-Datteln-Kanal (WDK) at channel kilometer 49.39 in Haltern-Flaesheim The lock group overcomes a height difference of 4.00 meters.The large lock is 222 meters long, 12 meters wide, designed for 2.80 meters draft, holds 11500 cubic meters of filling and has lift gates at both ends. It was built between 1928 and 1929 and officially opened in 1931 with the Wesel-Datteln Canal.The small lock was built between 1967 and 1969, is 112 meters long, 12 meters wide and holds 6600 cubic meters. It has a Hubsenktor on the upper water and a sliding gate on the underwater.The operation of both locks is done by the lock operator in the control booths on site. The pumping station is operated by the remote control center (FZW) of the Wasser- und Schifffahrtsamt Duisburg-Meiderich in Datteln, which was put into operation in 1984.
    In winter 2006, two new jetties were built for water walkers in the upper water. Along the canal level the cycle paths lead the route of industrial culture by bike and Roman route. At the lock is also the slipway of the nearby Marina Flaesheim. "Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schleuse_Flaesheim
