    The Lühesperrwerk at the mouth of the Lühe in the Elbe in the municipality of Grünendeich west of Hamburg is part of a flood protection concept on the Unterelbe, influenced by the tides, from the Geesthacht dam to the mouth of the river into the North Sea, which developed in February 1962 as a result of the severe storm surge has been.

    The barrage was built from 1964 to 1967 and put into operation in 1968. It protects the villages along the river in the old country.

    The structure has a depth of 23.45 m. The shipping opening has a clear width of 10 m. It can be closed by two two-part mortise gates. The punch depth is 4 m below sea level, the upper edge of the mortise gates is 7.60 m above sea level. The barrier is closed in the event of a storm surge from a water level of 2.20 m above sea level. There is a bascule bridge above the barrage, which was built in 1982 by the district of Stade and replaced a previously used roller bridge.

    Here you can take a nice break as a cyclist and relax. At the barrage you will also find a snack.

    The Lühe barrage was relocated to the new Elbe dike line south-east of Stade in the course of the pre-dike. It was put into operation in 1968 after four years of construction under the planning and supervision of the Stade Water Management Authority. The mouth of the Lühes lies in the Altes Land between the villages of Grünendeich and Lühe.

    Pure activity at the pier with many "food stalls". Here you can find the best ice cream between Hamburg and Cuxhaven.
