    The Ems-Jade Canal was built between 1880 and 1888. It owes its origins to Prussia's wish to connect his war harbor Wilhelmshaven, which was located as an exclave in the then Grand Duchy of Oldenburg, by waterway with the Prussian East Frisia, to which Wilhelmshaven belonged politically at the time.

    If you're lucky, you can watch successive locations along the Ems-Jade Canal as the various bridges on the Ems-Jade Canal between Dykhausen and Wilhelmshaven are tilted or rotated for boats. Very interesting. And you are always a bit faster with the bike than the boats ;-)

    The small marina and the cuddly village are central to many tours.

    In good weather, the distant view is often more than exhilarating

    The bridges are hand operated and must be opened for the ships by the keeper.

    A nice point for a little break.
    Route between Schortens and Dykhausen. Immediately after the bascule bridge, turn left to Sande, always along the canal.
