    Small lock Flaesheim on the Weser Datteln Canal with a beautiful view of the canal and cargo ships. Just take a break and watch the action.

    Even if I have passed the locks 100 times. They don't lose their charm.
    They are simply great structures and it is always interesting to watch them lock.

    The Flaesheim locks belong - from the Rhine - to the fourth of the six canal stages of the Wesel-Datteln Canal (WDK) at canal kilometer 49.39 in Haltern-Flaesheim. The lock group overcomes a height difference of four meters.
    The large lock chamber is 222 meters long, 12 meters wide, designed for a draft of 2.80 meters, holds 11,500 cubic meters of filling and has lifting gates at both ends. It was built between 1928 and 1929 and officially opened in 1931 with the Wesel-Datteln Canal.
    The small lock chamber was built between 1967 and 1969, is 112 meters long, 12 meters wide and holds 6600 cubic meters. It has a lifting gate on the upper water and a sliding gate on the lower water.
    Both locks are operated by the lock keepers in the control stands on site. The pumping station is operated by the remote control center (FZW) of the Duisburg-Meiderich waterways and shipping office in Datteln, which went into operation in 1984.
    Two new piers for water hikers were built in the upper water in the winter of 2006. Along the canal step, the cycle paths route of industrial culture by bike and Roman route lead. The slipway of the nearby Marina Flaesheim is also located at the lock.

    The technology of the lock with liftable lock gates and thundering water when emptying the lock is worth seeing.

    This type of lock gate (lifting gate) was previously unknown to me. So far I only knew the swing gates.
