Schiffshebewerk Henrichenburg

Waltrop: Henrichenburg lift lock

Fascinating high-tech constructions and newly designed parks constitute the attractions at Schleusenpark Waltrop. They include the old Henrichenburg lift lock (also incorporating LWL-Industriemuseum), the shaft lock, the new lift lock, the new lock, plants & equipment and settlements. Past and present of canal shipping (here represented by Dortmund-Ems-Kanal) co-exist here and are embedded into an attractive landscape. Visitors embark on a historic walk that takes them on a tour through a century of lock and lift lock heritage: the old Henrichenburg lift lock, built in 1899, and the new one, built in 1962, are only a few hundred metres apart.
