    A very good turning point for cycling tours. So you can experience both banks of the Lesum. Both are very sexy. On the southern side you can also give a great throttle!

    Here you can cross Lesum. From both sides the benches are in between for a short break

    The Lesum barrier located at the Lesum serves the purpose of flood protection and at the same time as a bridge connection between the Nordbremer districts Grohn (Bremen-Vegesack) and Werderland (Lesumbrok) in Bremen-Burglesum. It was built from 1971 to 1974 about one kilometer above the mouth in the Weser. The barrage was operated until the 1990s by the Bremen Water Resources Office and since then by the Bremen dyke association on the right bank of the Weser.

    The read barrier has only been around since the 1970s. It ensures that during storm surges the hinterland at Lesum, Wümme and Hamme is spared from river crossings.
    At night, however, one must expect that crossing the river through the barrage is not possible, because a passage for high-mast ships and boats must always be guaranteed. That's why at night the bascule bridge is often pulled up.
