    Beautiful lock! It's worth stopping for a moment and watching the ships.

    The shipping service on the Stecknitz, opened in 1398, had significantly more locks than the Elbe-Trave Canal, which was completed in 1900. Immediately at the Möllner city limits there was a "lock staircase" consisting of several locks, approx. 3 km north of the Möllner Ziegelsee there were two locks, the small and large thunder lock. It was a simple lock, the other a box lock with two gates.
    Today the big one still exists in a "modern" form (i.e. it is now 115 years old ...). A lock process takes a few minutes. The piece of canal north of Mölln is an idyllic landscape and the artificially created canal looks like a natural river landscape with gentle bends. By the way, do not worry: the name of the thunder lock does not bear witness to the frequent and dangerous storms that take place here. According to an old custom, the lock was named after the lock keeper family "Donner".
