    The flood gate as flood protection for the Rhine port in the port entrance is closed in the event of flooding, the water level in the Rhine can then continue to rise without the commercial areas in the port area being flooded.
    As a fallback level, the ring dike around the port area will continue to be maintained, so that only this will be flooded if the barrier gate fails.
    The flood gate is accessible and also serves as a pedestrian bridge over the entrance to the port, thereby shortening the footpath between Lake Knielingen and the Rhine port steam power station.
    The barrier gate was completed in 1987. It shortened the dike line of the main Rhine dike considerably, the harbor is now inside the dike. The gate was prompted by floods in the Rheinhafen on May 26, 1983 of 8.59 meters at the Maxau gauge.

    Impressive building. With a little luck you can watch ships being loaded and unloaded or the police boat goes on tour.

    The flood gate can be closed in 17 minutes with a locking body of 200t. It is closed when the Maxau level is 7.5m. The passage width is 40m and the passage height as with Rhine bridges. This means that inland vessels can normally be used when opening. As a pedestrian or cyclist, you can cross the flood gate via stairs and a transition and take a look into the harbor.
