Henrichenburg boat lift

On the way to Dortmund port on the Dortmund-Ems-Kanal ships have to pass a boat lift. Very interesting is the new boat lift. It was opened in 1962 and has a trough length of 90 meters and a width of 12 meters In 2005 it was taken out of use because it was to small for modern ships.
