    Here you can enjoy a great coffee and / or a cool wheat beer. When ships pass the lock, there is a lot to photograph, film and experience.

    Coastal motor boats that want to travel from the Ems via Dörpen and Oldenburg through the Hunte into the Weser and thus into the North Sea, or vice versa, pass through the lock

    A good opportunity to take a break to watch the boat.

    The lock system is nice to look at day and night, especially when ships are being passed through, of course.

    The operation no longer works with on-site staff, but is controlled with the help of cameras from the water and shipping office in Bremen.

    Oldenburg lock

    The lock, built between 1922 and 1928, is 105 meters long and overcomes a height difference of up to 5.40 meters at low tide. It is part of the coastal canal that connects the Hunte with the West German canal network. If the Oldenburg lock is blocked, shipping has to make an approx. 350 kilometer detour via the Mittelweser, the Mittelland Canal and the Dortmund-Ems Canal. The lock is used by approx. 5000 inland waterway vessels per year. In the summer months, numerous leisure boats are added. Next to the lock there is a barrage in the Hunte, which was created with the construction of the coastal canal to regulate the water levels of the various bodies of water. In 1927 it was supplemented by a hydroelectric power station that uses the height difference of a good 5 meters.
