Large talk companies offer boat trips.
Kachlet is an operated dam with a double lock and hydropower plant in the Danube near Maierhof in the district of Passau.Quote from Wikipedia:
The Kachlet, a section of the Danube before Passau strewn with rocks and small islands, has always hindered shipping. So it was decided to cover the almost 20 km long dangerous section.
For this purpose, Rhein-Main-Donau AG, founded in 1921, built a power plant with a double lock from 1922 to 1927. This was also the first step towards the creation of the Main-Danube Canal.
