    Since 2014, the record is back in Rendsburg: the longest bank in the world is back on the Kiel Canal. Everyone can sit on a 575.75 meter long wooden bench on the canal bank, an absolutely attractive box seat on the world's busiest sea shipping route.
    The title had to fight back Rendsburg hard. For 25 years ago, the city had set this extraordinary record. But in 2007, the Thuringians followed suit and presented a 49-meter-long bench at the Federal Horticultural Show in Ronneberg. But that did not want to let the Rendsburger sit on itself, an extension of the old bank had her. With the support of carpenters and construction companies from the region, the bank was again extended - by almost 25 meters more than the Thuringian model.

    On the shore of the Kiel Canal ("Kanalufer"), it is now permanently installed with a length of 575.75 m - an absolutely attractive box seat on the world's busiest shipping lane.
