    The Schachtschleuse was built in 1928 and put into operation in 1931 - a true piece of industrial culture.

    Since you can watch how ships overcome height differences.

    A lock, like so many others on the canal.
    At least at first glance.
    If you look closer, you notice a much larger difference in height compared to the other canal locks.
    And then there is this node that the lock serves.

    So definitely worth it.

    The large lock Datteln was built in 1928 and opened in 1931 together with the canal. It has a length of 222 m, a width of 12 m, the drop height is 7.5 m and the water consumption per smuggling is 20,000 m³. Ships with a draft of up to 2.8 m can be sluiced. On the upstream and downstream side, this lock is closed by lift gates. These sluice gates were renewed in November 1993.
