    When crossing the bridge you can see the terrain of the Hitzler shipyard. Specializing in repairs and construction of inland waterway vessels. It was founded by Johann Georg Hitzler in 1885. Barges always had an importance for Lauenburg and as a symbol for the boatmen, the caller stands on a forecourt on Elbstrasse.Sources:

    The shipyard is also right there and the old town is just a stone's throw away.

    Somehow I would have expected somewhere a fish stall ... but nothing! Otherwise very nice the harbor, Anlegekais and the shipyard.

    Outstanding features of the port are:
    - Transfer point for grab and bulk goods
     - Transfer point is located directly behind the Lauenburg lock in the Elbe-Lübeck Canal
     - year-round port, regardless of the water level of the Elbe

    The Hitzler shipyard has two operating parts, the large hall on the south side of the canal and the outdoor area on the north side with several smaller halls and offices. The shipyard specializes in repairs, ship extensions and the construction of icebreakers.

    When in the year 1861 the steam navigation on the Elbe was successfully operated by the brothers Burmester appropriate repair possibilities had to be created. In 1885, the task took place in a first shipyard operation, the brothers Burmester together with Johann Georg Hitzler. Already in the following year began in the shipyard on the north shore of Lauenburg harbor new construction of ships. The 300 tonne barge "Johanna" was the first ship to be built at the Hitzler shipyard, and the shipyard also developed the "Hitzler patent rudder", which has been manufactured and installed over 3000 times to date.
    In the Hitzler shipyard until today barges are built and repaired. Since 2001 the Arminius plants and Franz Hitzler operate the Hitzler Werft GmbH together.
    You can visit the shipyard as part of a guided tour and book it at the Tourist Information Lauenburg / Elbe.

    Ohle to the city, to both mourn in life, what for the eyes to do, so to make a difference.

    Between the halls one sees again and again ship parts, which could tell a long interesting history. It is worth to take a look at the terrain.

    The beginning or, depending on the direction of travel, the end of the Elbe-Lübeck Canal. Nice place at the headland at the mouth of the canal in the Elbe.
