The Henrichenburg Shiplift
For a popular day trip on the water
The Prussian eagle has been flying high above the Dortmund-Ems Canal on the impressive towers at the Henrichenburg ship lift in Waltrop for the last 120 years. To this day the steel lift has lost none of its fascination. It was built to enable waterway traffic to negotiate a 14-metre-high section of the canal, and was in operation for over 60 years. Today the landmark is a popular destination because it offers visitors a water playground and boat tours, alongside many other opportunities to explore life and work on the water.
