    Here ships are lifted by the Limmer in the channel. In summer it is also bathed here

    The port lock Linden was built in the context of the Mittellandkanalbaues and the branching branch canal (SKL) in the years 1906 to 1916 as a manhole lock in solid construction. 1916 was the start of the shipping company. Usable chamber length 85.00 m, clear chamber width 10.00 m, lifting height at normal water level 7.70 m.It is at the port lock to a shaft lock with laterally arranged open Sparbecken. The saving basins have a clay roof approx. 0.50 m thick which is covered by concrete slabs.In addition to the subheading is a one-story pump house.At the bottom is a road bridge, which also serves as a mask for the Untertor.The lock has a hinged door at the head, a beating gate at the head, cylinder shooter for the two-sided Sparbecken and upper water inlets and rolling wedge in the orbits of the lower head.The poor building fabric requires comprehensive repair measures, which - as far as possible - must be carried out during operation, as there is no further water-side access to the port of Linden.The lock Linden was rebuilt so that on site no more staff is required for the operation. The Linden lock is operated remotely by the Hannover Central Control Center (at the Anderten lock).Source:

    Small shoreline for sunbathing, chilling, barbecuing and swimming (for those who like to swim in a canal).
