Bike Touring Highlight
Since 1979, the entire complex Hammerbrook lock is a listed building. Included in this overall system are the lock basin east of the street Stadtdeich with the pool walls and the green area, then the swing gate including all movable and mechanical components and the cross bridge, the masonry in the area of the swing gate with the two passages and the part of the lock canal (the Vorhafens ) above the swing gate to the Erste Banksbrücke.

The listed Hammerbrook lock is located in the Oberhafen in Hamburg-Hammerbrook. As a weir, it serves to regulate the tide of the lock canal that branches off from the North Elbe at this point. The lock chamber, the original gates of which have not been preserved, is part of the city dike. The eastern extension of the building has a central hinged gate with two hinged guards in the two lower corners, which were used to regulate the water level.
The lock was built from 1844 to 1847 according to plans by Johann Hermann Maack and expanded in 1865/66. It was created during the development of Hammerbrook.
The lock was revised from 2008 to 2009. The steel components were given new corrosion protection; the segment gate on the Elbe was raised to 7.90 meters, the inland mortise gate and the lock chamber to 7.60 meters above sea level.

As part of an increase in the flood protection system, one of the few car-free cycle paths in Hamburg was built here in 2013. The panorama of the Elbe and the harbor is great.
Especially on weekends, especially where it gets tight, you should pay attention to racing cyclists: they are fast on the road and bloodless in the head after a hard workout. I have already experienced a bad accident.
