Tips

  • Peter_H_65 🐻

    From the Rhine, the Datteln locks belong to the last of the six channel stages of the Wesel-Datteln Canal, which joins the Dortmund-Ems Canal one kilometer behind the locks on the Dattelner Meer. The large lock was opened in 1931 together with the canal and is 222 m long and 12 m wide. Ships overcome a height difference of 7.50 m. In 1964 the lock was extended by a small chamber 110 m long and 12 m wide. The two locks together bring about 90 ships per day.
