The “Oberländische Kanal” 10.September

Good heavens, there are about 30 (!!!) German campers on tour through Poland at the campground we have chosen. And of course all of them take the boat for the boat trip on the Oberländische Kanal – just like us.

The channel is 82 km long. Nearly 100m of height difference have to be mastered over the whole length. This is controlled by a unique system of ship ramps. The boats are loaded on rails and pulled on ropes via rails to the next of five levels. The power is provided only by water.
