The old Ludwig Danube-Main Canal was inaugurated in 1846 after a construction period of eleven years.

If you look south in the direction of the Danube, you can see lock number one, the harbor with loading cranes, a warehouse and the lock keeper’s residence of the old Ludwig Danube-Main Canal, the predecessor to the current Main-Danube Canal. Today, the fully operational 600 meter long harbor is a monument to 19th century architectural engineering.
