    From here you have an impressive view of this technical structure, which fulfills two purposes. It was built as early as 1921 to make navigation on the Danube safer or to allow it for large ships. Because in the rocky section before that was very difficult before. Since then, the lock has been damaging the water and allowing even large ships to safely navigate the Danube. Quite incidentally, the turbines of the power plant produce energy for Passau. Cycling through the lock is definitely an experience.

    The Kachlet lock system was built with the overall construction of the Kachlet power plant for the continuity of shipping on the can use the facility to cross as a pedestrian or cyclist. The view of the Danube is especially beautiful down towards Passau.

    Here, the entire power consumption of the city of Passau is generated.
