    First locks in Brandenburg are mentioned in the literature from the Middle Ages, in the moat (1455) and in front of the stone gate (Kesselschleuse 1548).
    Since the boiler lock in front of the stone gate (city lock) had reached its capacity around 1870, 1881-83 another lock in the Krakow suburb was built in a breakthrough between the southern end of the Beetzsee and the northernmost bulge of Lake Plauer, the Quenzsee (suburban lock ).
    Due to the increasing dragging ship traffic, the still existing Schleppzugschleuse (south chamber) was built in 1904-09 according to the requirements of the towing train shipping.
    In 1970, the old suburban sluice was rebuilt.

    This lock is well preserved and is therefore worth seeing in operation
