In the West, the connection to the Rhine via Dortmund-Ems-Kanal and Rhein-Herne-Kanal or Wesel-Datteln-Kanal is established. In the east, the Elbe-Havel Canal, Untere Havel Waterway and Havel-Oder Waterway connect the Mittelland Canal with the Oder. In the European dimension, it allows a connection between the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Switzerland on the one hand with Poland and the Czech Republic on the other.Source:
