  • We are passed by chance here and then over four hours left. The Museum is great, everything is always in addition child-friendly described and elaborately documented. Vividly tell the story of the plant and you can delve right in. There is much to see, the lift can be climbed (great views) and there is a motor carrier with a great exhibition of life on board. Tip: in 400 meters walk there at the lock still a further exhibition space on inland waterway transport, which also can be visited for a small fee with the Combi-ticket. With a little luck, you can admire a ship smuggling in the large shaft lock beside and opposite there are very delicious cake in the Café Kortmann! ;-)

  • You are here to witness the industrial development. The boat lift is overwhelming; When you relate to the building this year is in fact high tech. Here you can set a number of hours your technical. Definitely go if you're in the area.

  • Dortmund-Ems Canal was built in the late 1800 's to give the developing Ruhr region better contact with the ports of the North Sea. The problem was that the level difference up against Dortmund was all of 14 metres and that there was not enough water to drive common locks. The solution was to build a "ship lifting works", at the time a technical masterpiece. The heart is a large 68 x 9 meters large "bathtub" that stood at five major "floaters" who themselves rested on large water tanks blasted 33 meters in the mountain. By pumping in and out of the water in the reservoirs could "tub" with its cargo of water and barges shall be increased or reduced. The pumps were run initially by a steam engine, later by electric motors. The work was completed in 1899 and was shut down in 1969, first as first two "sparslussar" and 1989 a new oich larger "Hebewerk" replaced. The old mill was rescued from demolition and is now a popular industrial museum. Interesting collections is gathered in the old pump house, outside there is a nice restaurant and in the lower basin is located several museum ships. In addition, there is a walk way over to the locks and the new work (as with our visit was closed due to technical problems). Ps1. Please try coming up with a guided tour. Search on the Agency's website. PS2. There is a nice "gastro bus ' with fast food parked next to.

  • Very interesting building. Worth a trip. Large beer garden with an English bus painted in green. Civilian rates. There are also homemade cakes or cakes on weekends. 100% recommended.

  • Even if it is only once a year and only for a weekend: the Christmas market is worth a visit. Small, sweet stalls where you can buy different things. One stands in the open air, but also between old machines in the Museum are available. In between, there's also something to eat to have a drink. It is worth a visit in any case.
