Scharnebeck twin ship lift

N 5317.521', E 1029.324'
2016-05-28
Our rating: 7.20
Overall rating:
One of the most unusual structures in Germany is located in Scharnebeck. The lift for river ships was built in 1974 and it is the world's largest double lift (in 2016, China built a single lift, about 2.5 times bigger than this one, video).

In the vast majority of cases, gateways are being built to raise ships, but in this case the Germans decided to build the lift.

There is a road and a pedestrian pavement under the lift, so you can go up close and observe the rise or descent of the ship.The giant platform descends at arm's length. The lift operates almost without interruption.
