The Hagenburg Canal was artificially created in the 1760s. From here building materials for the filling of the Wilhelmstein Island and the construction of the fortress could be transported directly on boats. After a length of 1.2 km it flows directly into the Steinhuder Meer. At the end of the canal is Hagenburg Castle.

The section on the Hagenburg Canal is one of the most scenic areas in the shore region of the Steinhude Sea.Not only since Count Wilhelm zu Schaumburg-Lippe had his soldiers widen the canal in connection with the construction of the Wilhelmstein in the 18th century, has there been a connection between the sea and the drainage and irrigation system of the ditches around Hagenburg Castle, the former castle . And so today's Hagenburg Canal is also called "Burgoder Meergraben" on early maps.
