Schleuse Leerstetten (main-donau-kanal) Reviews & Ratings
Technically fascinating, especially if you see it in action. The information panels explain how it works, to give you the full ingenuity of the lock. Great showcase of the undervalued works of engineering!
This lock was built as a saving lock. Leonardo da Vinci had designs of such methods of re using the water. The elevation of this lock is the highest or one of the highest of the Federal waterway Main Danube Canal
no facilities, but a nice clear view of how these locks work
Wow this is amazing, the lock system is very well designed.
The Canal was very interesting with all the locks to raise the boats up over the land and connect the Danube & Main Rivers.
