    The Kanuparkschleuse compensates for the water level heights of the Markkleeberger and Störmthaler lakes, which differ by four meters. This is the highest difference that a lock in the Leipziger Neuseenland has to compensate so far and in the future. The 850 m long Störmthaler canal between the two lakes is the first navigable canal that was built in Leipzig's Neuseenland. At the top and the bottom of the canoe lock is a so-called Vorhafen with dolphins for attachment of the passenger ship and with jetties for water walkers. Who does not want to wait for the lock process, can take out his canoe at the Umtragestellen and reinsert. The Umtragestellen are designed barrier-free, so that even handicapped water sports come without restrictions to the water. From the beginning of the season 2013 boats can change up to ten meters in length and 1.20 meters draft between the Markkleeberger and the Störmthaler See.If there is an individual approval of the Landratsamtes / Umweltamt, boats (especially guided tours) can pass the lock.

    Between Markleeberger lake and Störmthaler lake is a lock, which connects both lakes, and is also used by passenger ship.
