We decided to revisit the Kiel Canal. This time to the main locks in Kiel.
Driving to the locks we drove over an old bridge with views down onto the canal. We found somewhere to stop (Germany is not very good at providing viewpoints!)and walked onto the bridge. Great views.
When we arrived at the locks there was only one small vessel going through so we waited around for a while. Just as we were thinking about to leaving we spotted along the canal a huge container ship coming. A short while after another ship appeared, then another and then another. It was like waiting at a bus stop!
We watched all four enter the lock. The first one was enormous and needed the assistance of a tug to manoeuvre into the lock. It reminded us of our time in Canada watching the big laker’s in Niagara. Great to see.
This was our last visit in Germany for a while. We head into Denmark tomorrow.
