    With a useful length of 250 meters and a width of 25 meters, the Geesthacht lock was built in 1957 to ensure a uniform draft between the Lower and Upper Elbe. So that the larger ships can pass between the Lower and Upper Elbe, the Niederelbe was dredged to a depth of 12 meters. However, the water level of the Upper Elbe was not allowed to become too shallow and the water table of the Elbmarsch did not sink.
    Since then, the lock with the lock channel of shipping has made it possible to overcome the gradient created by the weir. The barrage lifts the Elbe mirror up to two meters above the previous mean water level.
    From the Elbbrücke you have excellent views of the busy traffic and the impressive technology of the lock. Not far from the lock is the barrage with the largest fish ladder in Europe. Again, you have a good overview of the Elbe bridge. The lock is among other technical attractions part of the technical tour in Geesthacht. By bike you can go on an exciting discovery tour of Geesthacht technical and industrial attractions.

    Lock canal Geesthacht with a double lock. The two lock chambers with a length of 230 meters and a width of 25 meters each hold four large motor ships or a corresponding push bandage. The 4 lifting gates are moved electromechanically and by counterweights in the lock towers with little effort.

    It's quite impressive what kind of bodies of water move here. In addition, it is of course a good opportunity to cross the Elbe - especially as you can then also examine the fish ladder;)

    The lock was built together with the weir, the water level of the Elbe at 4 m above sea level. elevated. Thus, the shipping is ensured in the summer months to the channels Elbe-Lübeck Canal and Elbe Side Canal. Also, the backwater was necessary to remove the amounts of water for the pumped storage plant and later for the cooling water of the nuclear power plant Krümmel. Everything depends on what we find on the Elbe.

    Interesting structure, where the ships are moved 4 m up or down.
