Pre-conference tour to ship's hoist Niederfinow
The Niederfinow boat lift, which was commissioned on March 21, 1934, is the oldest working ship lift in Germany. It lies at the eastern end of the Oder-Havel-Kanal in Niederfinow / Brandenburg and overcomes a difference in altitude of 36 meters.
It is a protected industrial monument according to the Hague Convention on the Protection of Cultural Property in Armed Conflicts.
Parallel, the New Ship’s Hoist Niederfinow is being built, which will meet the parameters of a Class V European waterway, thus meeting European standards and will replace the old hoist by 2025 at the latest.
