The construction of the port was in May 1938. In the spring of 1943, the work was stopped, with large parts, including 3 storage houses, the port railway system and the connection to the industrial railway PX were already completed. However, the connections to the Elster-Saale-Kanal and the Karl-Heine-Kanal were unfinished. The port was thus by 2015 not accessible by water.The project envisaged two transshipment port basins, each 1000 meters long, 90 meters wide and six meters deep, and two industrial harbors north of the transhipment basins. 😊👊🏻

An industrial monument in the west of Leipzig, which never came to perfection. The stores have an impressive size. The construction work was discontinued in 1943. The connection of the Karl-Heine-Canal with the Elster-Saale-Canal is planned in the distant future.
