    Good way to cross the Main and avoid Hanau city traffic - the stairs have narrow slopes, which should be difficult for electric bikes!

    Can you cross by bicycle. Bike tour next to the steps, but very steep. E-Bike raufschleppen - well ...

    It is also interesting to be able to watch the locks of a dick ship.

    Interesting to see how much water masses are in motion

    When the weather is clear, there is a great view of the Frankfurt skyline and the Feldberg. If there is a lot going on, it can happen that you have to wait a little until you can push your bike up the stairs. V.a. the wheel of the southern stairs is quite steep and should not be easy to descend with a heavier bike.

    The main road Mühlheim consists of lock, weir and power plant. The height of fall is 3.77 m. The usable size of the lock chamber is 300 m x 12 m, the boat lock 20 m x 4 m.

    The barrage was built in 1980 as a replacement for the downstream dam Mainkur.

    The crossing by bike is quite possible, because it is not very steep.

    Interesting to stand on the lock and see how the ships are being channeled.

    View of the Main and, if you're lucky, a ship in the lock. If you have a child with you, it is THE highlight
